Are these cd’s Taiyo Yuden?

TDK Metallic cd-r 80 700 MB 48x (50 Cakebox)


#2

TDK CD-Rs are manufactured by

  1. TDK at its own production site in Luxembourg
  2. Ritek, in accordance with TDK quality standards
  3. CMC, in accordance with TDK quality standards
  4. Tayo Yuden, but you won’t find them very often

Do you have the ATIP of these TDK Metallic CD-R 80 700MB :confused:
Most likely they are made by Ritek or CMC, but to be sure
the ATIP-code is required :wink:

I’ve never seen any "Made in … " on a TDK CD-R/CD-RW package or spindle :confused:
So you never know the manufacturer of TDK media until you have the ATIP infos.

I got the TDK Metallic cd-r today. They are marked with made in Luxembourg.

Here is the info:

This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 15s 17f
Norminal Capacity = 702.82MB (79m 59s 70f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = RiTEK JS-dye
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 48X

What does JS-dye means?


#10

They aren’t made in Luxembourg, only the packagin is… :slight_smile:

JS-Dye is Ritek’s way of saying that they come from “J” and “L” production lines. I’ve eaten myself through half a spindle of these and I am impressed with the results, I’ll go and buy another spindle soon (before the 1 November tax-raise :Z)

“JS-Dye is Ritek’s way of saying that they come from “J” and “L” production lines. I’ve eaten myself through half a spindle of these and I am impressed with the results, I’ll go and buy another spindle soon (before the 1 November tax-raise )”

That’s not true at all. JS is the dye formulation. RiTEK’s J and L production lines also make discs using other formulations, such as TG and K.

To find out the dye type of a RiTEK CD-R, look at the serial number printed on the clear plastic hub of the disc. You’ll find that the first character is a LETTER, representing the production line, and then a few characters down there should be one or two LETTERS representing the dye formulation, such as G, K, JS, J, S, or TG. BTW, SMART-BURN does not recognise K-dye properly and lists K-dye discs as being S-dye.

As far as I can see the number is J608 JS302073025D1 7

Get [COLOR=purple]Platinum instead - the same media ( see my test ), although twice as cheap.[/COLOR]
