Hello,

I have the BTC DVDRW IDE1004 0250 and I want to use my Khypermedia DVD-R discs identified by DVD Decrypter 3.2.2.0 as TDKG02000000, the MID code is as follows:

00 6A 00 00 01 40 C1 FD 9E D8 50 00 02 98 0C 13 .j…@…P…
76 78 80 00 03 54 44 4B 47 30 32 00 04 30 30 30 vx…TDKG02…000
30 30 30 00 05 88 80 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 000…

I do not recall seeing these included in the list of BTC firmware updates. The few of these I have used have not worked well with PS2 games. It has been since maybe F/W v0043 since I tried using the KHypermedia DVD-Rs.

Thanks,
ski

Somebody, anybody have experience with these Khypermedia DVD-R discs [TDKG02] available at OfficeMax??? Thanks in advance.

Hi, I’ve burned many successfully for movies. Do you get a successful burn? Perhaps it is the copy protection ps2 games use that make the discs unusable.

Those are fake TDK discs…

They are actually manufactured by PRINCO and is VERY crappy quality…


#5

Fake TDK made by Princo? Argh!!!


#6

I have used Princo and Memorex (Richo) discs with no problem on my 1004 fw 350. Princo isn’t bad but then again lots of brands aren’t bad unless it is a bad batch from that brand.

ron71157,

Thanks for the reply. When I made this post this MID code was not in the revision list OR I somehow missed it. My code is TDKG02000000 [DVD-R] and it is listed for 1004 v47 so it has been there for some time.

I had 20 of these Khypermedia/TDKG02 DVD-R discs and every one I used for making a PS2 game [about 4 or 5] all failed. Not the case for DVD movies though, all play, in my Toshiba and my PS2. With exception of like 1 disc, all discs I have burned in my BTC 1004 v0043 - v0350 [even my Starlogic/Princo 1x DVD-Rs] have burned without error, a handful have failed VERIFY though. I have 50 of those Princos left so I will use them for my PS2 games [even though they are not always successful either, about 3 of 4 work with some being a little glitchy].

Thanks,
ski

Skyvader,

Yea my Princos have been okay, I got the whole lot of 100 from Officemax for $20 after rebates some 6 months ago so for that price I cannot complain at all.

I could confirm these are crappy media (on my BTC1008 and NEC2500 and Liteon811S)
fake TDK or not, who knows and don’t care anyway

don’t burn over 3.5G on these media
