Fake or real Taiyo Yuden (pic included)

Hi,

I bought a couple of Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 4x disks for the first time, but I can’t tell if they’re real. I searched the forum and found that CD-R s have a frosted hub, but I don’t know about DVDs. The numbers in the hub can’t be seen, but it’s 5E316K56093SB. Some people said they have to be written across and others say they can be written around the hub. These ones are around the hub.
I attached a scan of the hub.

Thanks in advance.

The GD000098 number is your verification that this is a genuine TY disc.

Yup, the easiest way to tell if they are fakes is when they come re-branded under another label (ie Sonic, Matrix). Also the majority of the fakes are 8x and contain the TYG02 code.
