What is the actual MID displayed?..both dvd identifier and nero will display this info.
MCC does manufacture verbatim, but not all verbatim is manufactured by MCC. AFAIK, all Taiyo Yuden is manufactured by Taiyo Yuden.
Some of the known TY fake brands are:
Infosmart, Optodisc, MAM-America, MAM-Europe and are “seen” as TYG02.
I think you’re ok.
A number of us have bought from meritline. While some don’t like this retailer…they have been known to substitute, say shipping TYG 03s instead of TYG02s, they have never sold fake or bogus media afaik. I’ve purchased quite a bit of media from them without any problems.
The MID you posted is legit.
I don’t have an explanation as to why the difference in dvd identifier and nero.
Do you have another optical drive that you could repeat the ID process with?
