No you can’t.
However some people might still believe that the name of a specific manufacturer on a disc makes it good or bad however these days that doesn’t work with to much fake codes and licensced media and overprinted/B-grade media floating arround.
+R => has MPO code and is made by MPO = MPO does make decent media under normal conditions but they are a european manufacturer so the actuall support of this media is questionable.

-R => FUJIFILM03 => can be made by anyone who has access to FUJI technology (to give a few examples: FUJI,Prodisc,CMC,MBIL) => Quality ? support is mixed but most times good. (If I’m right then Benq burners don’t like these.)

Like allways you should test media. Then again I haven’t seen any testing software so far under linux but that might be because I hardly use it and specially not for dvd-burning.
