Fake MCC 004 media?

I bought discvision branded dvd+r discs recently. Its labelled at 8x maximum but it burns well at 16x on SONY DRU-820A. No obvious problems yet…but i’d like to be sure these are not fake.

Thanks guys

MCC 004 is 16x DVD+R.
Look at the outer hub code.
Does the outer hub (not the transparent part, but the metallic part with another color than the rest of the metallic part) say anything like ZD…-DVR-…? If yes, those can be real MCC 004.
Please also post the hub found in the inner, clear part so we can detect the factory.

The Outer hub does not have a code.
Inner hub code : 12/12/2005 13:56:11-2- 01365 L2

Fake!
