WARNING 16x TY CODED FAKE MEDIA

Postby RJW on Wed Jun 22, 2005 6:24 am

Currently I have any reason to assume that the market soon will be flooded with disc's containeing.
TYG03 code or YUDEN000T03 code.
Mostly the media will be printable and comming from Hongkong.

However according to the lastest information we will see less hongkong 8x media with fake taiyo yuden code but we will see more with MCC code.
So people beware.

Incase of MCC I suggest to only buy verbatim/mitsubishi branded MCC disc's.
Incase of Taiyo Yuden I suggest to only buy from respected stores and have a good look at teh serials.

Does that mean the mega cheap 8x Velocity DVD +R's I got for $25/100 spindle that read MCC03 might be bogus? They sure do "look" cheap.

Or is this more a 16x thing?

There is still abuse going on of both Taiyo Yuden's 8x and 16x codes, and MCC's 8x and 16x codes.

IIRC the Velocity discs are made by Prodisc, one of the companies MCC uses for its production, so that would make them "legitimate" MCC003.

"Off-brand" discs also tend to use the downgrade media or possibly media that was rejected for use in the official Verbatim brand.
( Although I have no experience with Velocity brand stuff )
