Does anyone know what the MEDIA ID (MID) is of these discs?

According to Videohelp.com they are RICOHJPND01 = mixed reviews not the best discs to use
unless they are Falcon Media FTI made then they are ok.

Well there are different versions of the Aone dual layers such as Plus/Premium and now Gold. Premiums have a MID of UMEDISC-DL1, Plus are RICOHJPND01 and Golds are unknown at the moment.

The videohelp articles relate to the older versions as the Gold versions were only released recently.

I know this thread is a tad old, I just bought myself some of these AOne Gold Edition discs which hopefully I can use later today, so if they do read on my nannans burner (which doesn’t read on my mums laptop :doh: ) I will try and give you a MID code for them. I pray it is Ricoh discs, though.

AOne CD-R are Plasmon discs, by the way, only burnt a handful so far, but all Plasmon discs have been excellent for me so far under different brands - Signellex, Hyundai, and now AOne :iagree:

AOne Plus + Gold Edition have the RICOHJPN-D01-67 ID Code - I hear around the internet that despite this being the most copied (and faked? :Z ) media ID on cheap Chinese discs that AOne discs are one of the best.

Verbies might still get my vote if they weren’t so damn expensive! :frowning:

Verbatims may seem to be expensive, but they are far more reliable and compatible than cheap DL media, like Aone, Tesco, MediaRange, etc.
I wouldn’t be too surprised if you couldn’t successfully burn more than 50% of those Aone discs you bought.

Pepst, don’t worry, I don’t plan to use them to displace my stock of Maxell single-layered DVD-R as I find they are much more difficult to burn (setting up, knowing layer changes, etc) and I find their price, understandably double single layers, a bit of a setback. Less discs for same price.

Rather have my AVI Rips / Data / Whatever stored on several Single Layered Discs rather than a dual layer because not all burners can read DL discs, and if one disc goes down, it doesn’t take out all of my data. :slight_smile:

Maxell RitekF1, best discs used so far. Very very reliable!
