I found a small supply of Mitsui branded CD-Rs at a shop, but since I've never heard of this brand until browsing the forums :\ Can somone please confirm whether these discs are the 'old' Mitsui media, or MAME discs.
The 10-packs carried at the store are tagged as "Mitsui Gold" instead of "Unbranded" at the bottom right corner. Otherwise, the packaging is identical.
However, the packaging does state that it is made in Taiwan, so I'm beginning to have some doubts here
I couldn't find a picture of the discs contained within on the net so far, and neither do I have a scanner. But the discs DO NOT look like the one featured below:
It's hard to describe a picture with words but on the middle left side of the disc the Mitsui logo, which can be seen on the top left hand corner of the 1st image, is imprinted. The middle right hand side of the disc is imprinted a smaller verson of the "CD-R 700MB" which is found in the the middle of the 1st image too. The bottom half has 5 lines for writing the contents of the discs and is labelled with only the word 'index'.
CDSpeed brings up the following information:

Can someone who has had experience with real Mitsui media confirm whether I have on my hands a load of junk or the good stuff
Thx a bunch.
