Okay, now a lot of us know CMC Magnetics in some way, shape, or form. We know how CMC Magnetics does some of Verbatim’s media, and with these discs, we always see hub codes that have an A as the second character, such as PAPA, MAP6, etc. I read somewhere on the forum that the second letter represented the type of dye used for that particular disc, A being AZO.
What I would like to ask you media experts is, is it correct that the second letter represents the dye type used? If so, has anyone ever figured out other dye types that CMC uses? For example, I got some HP discs made by CMC, CMC MAG AM3. These discs have a hub code starting with MTP6. What on earth can the T stand for?
Also, is there a definitive guide for what the other letters stand for? I searched a bit, but didn’t find anything.
Thanks in advance for any info!
