The dvd disc itself has written in its inner circle two numbers (PC5 and JC529A3100) and on the other side GG000102. Can anyone tell me if these dvds are fake or Taiyo Yuden original?

Looks like it too me. All TY media has GT, GG and GH serial or batch numbers, so yours looks like the real thing.:slight_smile:

I dont think this should have been posted in the dvd media tests forum.

Dumb place to post unless you provide scans and even then maybe in a proper thread. You don’t even mention the brand name if any.
