What are these? Ritek?

This old thread

seems to be saying MiHK, but I’m pretty sure these are MIT.

If they are truly MIT, then they would likely be RiTEK or Daxon (as Prodisc is now no longer manufacturing blank writable media), with CMC-made discs also possible in those packages.

Prodisc is (or was) one of my favourite CDR makers.

How many times have you seen me refer to Prodisc’s financial troubles when talking about Verbatim media? Did you think I was joking? Did you think that it only affected their production of Verbatim media and nothing else?

Prodisc has gone to hell. Tell your children about it!

Well I had of course read your postings about Prodisc being in financial trouble but I was hoping they wouldn’t go under or stop making discs, there is some difference between “in financial difficulty” and “gone kaput.”

What a bummer. I particularly loved Prodisc CDs - they scan nicely and I’ve found them to be near Taiyo Yuden in stability, Prodisc also had the most ranges of aesthically pleasing discs with coloured substrates, printable-top-black-bottom disc, etc.

Guess I’d better stock up on the Prodisc offerings on SVP … while I still can :frowning:

R.I.P. Prodisc :o

Hopefully, your Prodisc CD-Rs are better.

Most of the fuji discs I’ve seen in that type of package are Daxon!! BUT can’t be sure!

Right. Note that the spindle above contains colored disks, so they may be different from the regular disks that come in the same package.

Drage, I think you’re being unfair. I burned this excellent USD 0.10 “Colors” CD-R more than a week ago, and it still reads back as well as the afternoon I burned it.

Negritude, it just might be Prodisc in there… there’s still a heck of a lot of that stuff in retail channels. Maybe you’ll be lucky and get some Riteks. Most of the Daxon CD-R’s I’ve been seeing in my neck of the woods aren’t MIT anymore.

Right. Daxon seems to have switched a lot of it’s DVD and CD production to Malaysia.

True. The only MIT Daxon-manufactured DVD media that’s commonly avalable around Chicagoland are DVD+R’s with the Sony brand name on the packages.

And you are correct that virtually all Daxon-manufactured media that I saw in recent months are made in Malaysia.

As for the FujiFilm-branded color-label CD-Rs: If they’re MIT, then they’re most likely from RiTEK (with a few leftover Prodisc-made spindle packages still in inventory); if they’re made in Malaysia, they’re nearly always Daxon (MIM media also used to be made by MJC, which is now bankrupt).

  1. It’s interesting to note that with Sony specifically, Daxon switched production of all the 16x DVD-R media to Malaysia, while the 16x DVD+R media remained in Taiwan.

  2. Now I know why I can no longer find MJC media under the JVC brand. :doh:

Also, as of recently, Daxon has switched production of some of the Sony-branded 16x DVD+R media to Malaysia.
