Holy moly, I can’t decode all the acronyms and terms commonly thrown out when talking about blank media. Help me out here by verifying and explaining some of them I’ve seen:
Here’s what I can figure out on my own:
MIJ, MIT, MII: Made in Japan, Made in Taiwan, Made in India? What others are there? I think I read “MID” once, and can’t for the life of me figure out what is country “D”???
TY: Taiyo-Yuden, the blank manufacturer alot of CDF’ers prefer
Cakebox: The storage container that blank media comes in, reminds one of boxes that stores edible cake
PIE: Same as C1 error, read the sticky. Correctable without slowdown, less severe.
PIF: Same as C2 errors, read the sticky. Correctable by slowing down the read, shouldn’t be any on the disc
Below are the ones I have questions on:
What is CMC? As in “CMC MAG E01”
What is RICOHJPN?
What is TRT and QS?
What is PAP6, PAPA?
And are these the media codes? if so is there a sticky that lists all of these in one thread?
