vbimport

#1

On the pack they are called imjet but when i run the disk in kprobe it says they are Taiyo Yuden, here are some pics

the top of the disk;

What kprobe says about the discs;

are they real?


#2

They probably are, the media code looks right. Where are they made? Where did you buy them? I am not expert so you should ask other people, too.


#3

Im not sure where they are made but i bought them from a market stall.


#4

Unfortunately, the TY MID has been faked a fair bit…there was a thread at the top of the forum about which discs are fakes, not sure if it’s still there.

However, these discs I know nothing about…except that they’re suspect til someone tells me otherwise. :slight_smile:

Edit: Fancy a nice long read? You might find the discs somewhere in here. :wink:


#5

How can discs be faked?On the pack it said nothing about Taiyo Yuden


#6

seeing as you have already got them, do a burn, see how it comes out, if its good, you will know that you have the real thing, if its bad, chances are their fake


#7

The Media ID, which is in the information on the disc itself, can be faked.

Edit: Can I ask what country you’re located in?


#8

Ive done plenty of burns before with these, they turned out ok.Il try a few more though.


#9

I live in England


#10

Do a quality scan… post the results here :slight_smile:


#11

OK…so for future reference, if you can shop online…www.svp.co.uk will sell you genuine Taiyo Yuden discs. :slight_smile:


#12

That could be a sign they are fake.


#13

Yeah, the market stall thing definitely isn’t a good sign, LOL :bigsmile:


#14

you dont know that… lets hope there stolen :wink:


#15

ROTFLMAO :bigsmile:


#16

that is a possibility and they are branded with imjet and the company name for the blank DVDs are ImDisc…


#17

yea :stuck_out_tongue: Im running a quality scan now, before when i scanned this media there was no errors but when it got to 99% the errors suddenly shot up to around 60?


#18

Posting a scan would be better as there are different kinds of errors, and we’ll be able to see what they are :slight_smile:


#19

you shouldnt multitask during scans, it can effect the scan.


#20

What other programs can effect a scan?
