Although the other thread shows different pic, but I went to my local bestbuy anyway. Usually it never sell DVD -R/+R in TY cakebox except CD-Rs. But surprisingly, I found DVD-R 8x in TY cakebox, made in Japan, 12 of them!!! $29.99 minus $5 rebate, sale from 9/19-9/25.

There are also two spindles in regular box, made in Taiwan.

Nice deal!!!
Glad genuine TY are available more widely and at much better price than just couple months ago.


what does it mean (8x Cannot Be Detected) in DVD Identifier’s:

Recording Speeds : [1x , 2x , 4x] (8x Cannot Be Detected)?


To my knowlege the special this week was on 4x media. I could be wrong though.


If you look at the online description, I believe it says 1x. However, the spindle I bought in store was 8x.


Same here! 8x Fuji made in Japan. :smiley:


I will be at bestbuy tomorrow to get some


Was just there and bought 2 50pack DVD-R cakeboxes that said “up to 8x write speeds”.
Certainly did say on the label that they were made in Japan. What a bargain!!!


I just bought some myself, and came here to post the good news! Yes they are tyg02, what a steal! And here i expected to have to drop 50-60$ on oem ty 8x discs! Nice, im going back to buy some more later, awesome!

And my nec nd3500a should be able to push these discs to 16x correct?


I believe the TYG02 is 12x max for 3500A… it is the DVD+R YUDEN000T02 8X rated FUJI that can be pushed to 16x…


So should i stick with these at 30$, or return them and drop 70$ at newegg on the 100 fuji pack and hope to get TY that way? Opinions? And note i have no discs right now, after just buying my nd3500, and i can prolly only aford one or the other.


Nope, I would stick with it. There is no guranteed that you will get the Made In Japan FUJI 8x DVD+R 100pk from NewEgg. Although, if check the media forum, myself and [H]itman else just scored MIJ’s Fuji from Newegg order last Thursday or so. Mine is shipped from CA.


Yes there’s no guarantee you will get TY from newegg. Different warehouse could ship different batch, just like my local bestbuy has the TY made in japan, and another batch made in taiwan (probably ricohjpn). Or another sample is samsung 4x +R 50 pack, I still got the TY (ship from NJ, reviewed 8/5/04 under the same name) but some got optodisc. And don’t forget 15% restocking fee if you return to newegg, plus your own shipping cost.


I have to agree with the above posts. While I love newegg for virtually anything, I would never buy name brand media form them. Unless you can actually verify for sure that your particular batch of discs were made in Japan then you are taking a big gamble. If you want to avoid the hassle, you can buy the actual 8x Taiyo Yuden DVD-R discs in 100 packs for $70+shipping. That way you know for sure you are getting Taiyo Yuden before you blow a bunch of money on discs. www.rima.com Rima has excellent customer service (similar to newegg).


Thanks for the opinions guys. After thinking about it, its not often that im going to need the speed boost from 12x to 16x any how, and when i run out of these 50, then i can drop money on actually taiyo yuden bulk discs at that time.


My plexie 712A can only burn this Fuji TYG02 -R 8x @8x max. I have another 50pack Verbatim MCC03 +R 8x that can be burn @12x. Got both for sale $29.99 each. PI/PO scans are good, TYG02 PIE max 29, MCC03 max 41. Just for reference, YUDEN02 8x @12x max 15.

Bestbuy return policy allow to use only one in a spindle. If I am to choose, which one should I return, TY or MCC?


I personally would keep the TYG02… MCC003 are good, but I think there have been discussions about the different batches (Singapore vs somewhere else) that might allow you to burn at different speed and with slight different revision code.
TYG02 is just from 1 place and should be more consistent with quality…
Just my $0.02.


Aww, the two packs I picked up today come up as FUJI LM03 on DVD Ident. Is this any good?


Are those made in Japan? and the spindle like this? Never mind the +R, but TY produces cake box like this picture.


Does anyone know if these TYG02’s that are currently on sale at BB are any good with the Optorite DD0203?
