Do FUJIFILM manufacture DVD+R media themselves?

I heard from my friend, in a recent test post online, a FUJIFILM brand DVD media burned with PX-716A do out performance “That’s” brand DVD media(manufactured by Taiyo Yuden), which probably is the best media for PX-716A.
He tell me the media is manufactured by FUJIFILM other than OEM from other manufacturer for very sure.
But the guy forget if it’s a DVD+R or DVD-R media.
The link to the test is also lost.
I know FUJIFILM do manufacture DVD-R media, but not sure about DVD+R.

Anyone can confirm this message?
Or show me the link to the test?
Because I intend to find out the best media for my drives.


I have some philips dvd+r 8x with fujifilm ID. Here is the sum8 test I did.

Sorry, is -R dvd

Fuji does manufacture some FUJIFILM03 8x DVD-R in Japan, but it’s pretty rare. Most FUJIFILM03 is made in Taiwan by Prodisc. There doesn’t appear to be any Fujifilm DVD+R media codes.

Philips DVD-R with FUJIFILM03 MID, usually made by CMC -All FUJIFILM03 made in Taiwan are above of average in disc quality .

Fujifilm was responsible for developing the Oxonol dye that is used in their 16x DVD+R discs.
The MID on these discs is PHILIPSC16 (Philips stamper) and they are manufactured by CMC.
More info here:

I read this :

Doesn’t make sense Fuji’s 16x DVD+R appears using Philips dye/techology/MID,
if developing them. That is because same mid (PHILIPSC16) intend to be used (until now),by many brands as Maxell,Imation,Philips etc… but also these brands made 16x media, outside Taiwan and CMC (eg. Maxell,Philips)

Here is the DVD Identifier information for Fujifilm 8X DVD+R.

Here is an 8X burn and 8X scan in my Liteon 832S using CD/DVD Speed. It is from a 15 +5 bonus spindle labeled made in Japan. I got it at Kmart on sale.

Thank you for your help.
I will take a look.

The scan is at “Maximum” and quality 40 :frowning:

Any info if Fuji goes with upcoming Yuden000-T03 ?

Well that’s how it is, I’ve even spoken with my contact at Fuji about the development of their Oxonol dye.
If there are other brands using the Fuji dye then they will have paid licensing costs to Fuji or worked out other arrangements with Fuji.

Those quality scores don’t mean much.
That is a pretty good scan. The disc looks good. :wink:

I doubt they would go with YUDEN000T03 discs since they already have their own Fuji based dye 16x discs being manufactured by CMC. But I will ask my Fujifilm contact to see if he knows whether or not they will be using Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R or DVD-R discs in their upcoming products.

I picked up these at BB the other day for $9 USD/25 pk. Memorex brand. Was it a rare find? It was an opened package with no label. Just bought it to try out.

Yep, pretty hard to find in the US nowadays.

If it is possible ask for ,why Fuji don’t use “Fujifilm” MID .
16x Fuji’s/philips/CMC MID mentioned as “PHILIPSC16 Rev 1” not simple “PHILIPSC16” looks like used by other brands (made by CMC too ?)
I think quality may vary like many branded DVD+RW discs with Philips MID

Thats the media information of some Fujifilm media I got here in Brazil:

Just so you know, Fuji often does a poor job of handling their Taiyo Uden media.

Here is one that I burned at 8x on a Lite-On SOHW-832S:

That was as good as I could get it. Note that it reads as a TY02, yet the quality is junk.

I went through about 20 of the 50pk trying everything I could to get them to burn better, nothing worked.

Here is a Ritek G04 burned on the same burner, the same computer, the same day:

Beat that! :slight_smile:

Oh, BTW.

If you need TY media, get them straight from Taiyo Uden, not Fuji.

You can get TY02 for $0.43 per disk at if you buy a 100pk.
You can get TY03 for $0.50 per disk also at if you buy a 100pk.

The 50 packs are only about $.05 per disk more for the TY02, and $.06 per disk more for the TY03.

Ehh isn’t that a Cd-r ? (C (1/2)errors. + ATIP CODE are for a ritek cd-r)

^^LOL, yeah… look at the scanned range!

Cheap price not always worth the risk buying unbranded media.
There are a lot B’grade media out in the market ,even manufactured by TY.
