Hello Danny200987, welcome to the forum. :flower:
It is highly likely a fake TY medium - to be 100% sure I would need a picture of the serial & stamper numbers (the numbers near the central hole and in the recording layer).

I can’t get a good picture of it as it’s hard to see but the only one i can see is MOGXPR-842 and that’s on the bottom side of the disk.

It’s a low quality DVDR (most likely made in China) with fake TY MID code and questionable longevity.
By the way, where did you get them?

I got them from my local pound store, i used to use verbatin but seen these in the local pound store and thought i would give them a try. I only started doubting the quality of the disk when i burned some data to one of disk and when i turned the disk over i noticed a little triangle shape around the middle circle as you can see in attachment.

Now am thinking of buying some verbatin storage disk again, which leads to my next question.

Will i be able to use the data that’s already burned onto these cheap quality disk and make a copy to the verbatin disk? Well aslong as the data is still working fine on the cheap quality disk?

:iagree: You should be able to copy the data from the disc if there are no unrecoverable errors.
