Is there really a reliable way to determine the MID code of blank DVDs before buying?
I have visited the web sites listed on this site and tracked down the brands that were supposed to have MID codes compatible with my 1008.
In two cases out of two, however, the MID codes were not those listed on the web sites. Apparently, the companies selling the media are fond of changing suppliers…
In my case, I was lucky, however, and the MID codes that I bought were compatible anyway, just not the ones listed on the web sites.
How likely is it if I buy name brand media that I will get MID codes not listed by BTC as compatible? Can I just go out and buy brand-name media? I hate to do that, as I can’t bring it back once it’s open if it should happen not to be compatible.
Does anyone have a sure-fire solution to this problem?
