I'm posting a picture (sorry for the intense crop, I wanted to show it close up but fit the attachment limit) and some scans of one of the 'bad' TYG01s... this one luckily started towards the end of the disc so it wasn't a big deal. The disc was not full (only about 3.5gb used)
The picture was HARD to get. I tried all sorts of things and got lucky on this one. Most of the pictures showed nothing, even when I was way up close, macro zoom on, etc. I could barely even see it unless I was under flourescent lights. It's a weird problem with the dye... It's the discolored line pointing almost exactly towards the 'Compact Disc' logo of the case I put it in for pictures.
Hopefully this works since I've never posted pictures before! (The photo is entirely unretouched except for the crop/resize... I didn't touch the gamma, etc.)
