I was stumbling through wal mart and bought some maxell cdr audio discs in a 30 pack spindle. They were labeled as "Made in Japan" and I thought that since their cdr-pro line made in japan was yaiyo yuden i'd have good luck here. Ends up the atip data on the cd is cmc magnetics (a taiwan manufacturer). They were either mislabeled with the wrong country of origin or cmc magnetics has found a way to make it pretty opaque as to how not to buy their garbage.
They were the ones in the red and white packaging with the yellow 30 pk in the corner, usp 6 25215 18859 6. I took a photo of them, but i had no webspace to host it
Oh yeah... these are the 32x ones.
