Yup, Dicer is correct...Ritek/Ridata make the Aussie Phillips disks. Quite apart from the Phillips disks, which seem fine, other big makers seem to do funny things when it comes to our market. This is an issue that really burns me (pardon the pun). We seem to get big brand media specifically designed for sale only to us and made in the cheapest labour nations of the world. When comparing to media designated purely for Japan, Europe, North America etc, the quality seems far superior...why?
