Are these Taiyo Yuden CD-R?

I just bought a “100-pack Taiyo Yuden 52x CD-R Silver Thermal Lacquer Blank CDR Media Disk sealed in cake box /Made in Japan” off Ebay from eric8090 a Powerseller with a good record. When I got them I wasn’t sure they were the real thing. I thought all TY’s had frosted hubs. These hubs are clear. The code on the hub reads “80 PG7587”. I got several Memorex Music CD-R’s from a Sam’s Club Auction when they were clearing them out. All the wrappings said “Made in Japan” and they have frosted hubs.
I uploaded pictures I made of the front and back of one of the CD’s. I hope they show up since I’ve never tried this before. I tried to focus mainly on the hub and the code.

So, what do you think?

The hub codes are TY, have you tried reading the ATIP code?


#3

Yep. the hub code is TY, so I’d say you got yourself some nice discs there. ;)…not all TY CDRs have frosted hubs - I have some genuine TY CDRs without them.

BTW, welcome to CDF :flower:

I believe those are genuine TY CD-R media even though they aren’t “frosties”.

Thanks, guys for the replies. Worries now gone. Thanks too for the welcome. Been reading the forums for awhile. First time to get “involved”. I ran Nero Speed on them and it said they were TY. Is that what you meant by ATIP?
