[QUOTE=stugots2;2771274]any of these thermal discs?[/QUOTE]
I’m not sure which are available as thermal printable. Availability will vary between territories. Here in the UK they are generally only available from specialist suppliers, but what’s listed on their web sites don’t give the full picture. Other stuff aimed at the corporate market is available, if you know the right supplier (Googling won’t help).
The Falcon TDK certainly do thermal printable discs.
As are ‘white label’ Verbatim DataLife Plus - which I suspect are Verbatim MID (but cannot confirm). The easiest place to buy these (here in the UK) is from Verbatim’s web site, but their shop is expensive.
Panasonic did produce thermal printable BD-R - they’re listed in some of their brochures.
I don’t know about the Sony discs. In the past when they were made in Japan they were aimed very much at the corporate/professional market, so there [I]probably[/I] were thermal printable discs. But since all production was outsourced to Taiwan I [I]suspect[/I] they don’t do them any more.
The chances of finding thermal printable Infomedia BD-R are remote. Indeed all Infomedia BD-R are an endangered species. The latest [I]Infomedia-branded[/I] BD-R coming into this country are Ritek MID!
A good strategy (especially for Falcon, Verbatim & Panasonic) would be to search their own web sites and find the part/stock number of the discs that best suit your needs. Then make enquiries about their availability with specialist optical disc suppliers (or Google).
Good luck. (It’s always nice to see an old member return after a long absence.)
