HI to you all and thanks for your replies.
So if i get this right, this is a DVD-R made with a dye from Moser Baer India Ltd and with a real gold reflective layer.
YEs your disc’s are the real thing
Delkin gold -> Made by MAM-A -> using MBIL stamper.
But i am confused about who made this dvd. Above it says “Made by MAM-A” but the manufacturer id is different, its MBI 01RG40 and not MAM4XG02. Are dyes in new Archival Gold dvd-r’s being made by MBIL instead of MAM-A or MAM-E?
I’m guessing that Delkin have found MAM’s dye to be of poor quality and thus switched to MIBL’s dye.
The following is an answer from Delkin USA regarding same problem:
The difference between the package and the discs is correct. The discs are in fact 8X and some of the packaging was not switched when the initial change was made so it might say 4X on the package. Look on the discs for the correct speed. Did you purchase the discs directly from us? Without getting our hands on them itâ€™s hard to say if what you are seeing is normal or not. It does seem as though you have gotten our discs and they should be fine however at the same time I have NEVER gotten a complaint about an excessive amount of dust so that does throw up a red flag but if they appear to be working fine then I guess its just a one in million type things. Let me know if you would like to send the discs to us for an evaluation.
As far as the dust thing is concerned , i’ll just wipe them off as i always check for dust specks before burning. i was just amazed that there were like 5/6 dust specks on the burn side of the dvds and some would not come off.
another question. since the dye is from MIBL, how far is it true that the delkin dvds i bought have Made in USA printed neatly on the print side?
does delkin take bulk dvd-r’s from MIBL and just put a gold and scratch armour layer and then prints their brand and claim all the fame? or is it all done in india?
Not that i dont trust products from india, in fact i think they are very good from past experiences with the indian industry…
