Most newer dvd writer can burn TYG02 8x DVD-R up to 16x. However if you want TYG03, rima.com carries it, here.

Edit: RangeRoad beats me.

Are you sure of this? I'm asking because I have here a Fuji 8x DVD+R disc that I thought it was Taiyo Yuden. It says "Made in Japan", and its media code is TYG01, but the serial number is TG001125.

(In case it helps ID it: I am in Spain, and the disc comes in a jewel case with a dark (black/blue) cover).

TY G01 is 4x DVD-R, not 8x DVD+R.

GG000103 here, but it's generic hub-printable.

Generic G03 here is GH000073

Re: TYG02/TYG03 what are they

Well officially these codes are from Taiyo Yuden. However I can say that both codes have been faked by chinese manufacturers. (THere was a reason why I send the warning out !!)

There have been no substantiated reports of anyone "faking" serial numbers. I'm pretty sure dakhaas is referring to the media codes.

Hey guys,
I'm from italy.
I have a question: is it possible to use the TYG02 also here in italy, as we have a different Region?
I explain better: does it make any difference the place where you use the dvd?
Thank you,
Bye
