I was searching online for CD-Rs to replace my Memorex (RiTEK) CDs. I came across American Digital’s online site and found some Fujifilm CD-R 48x which specfically says “Made in Japan” according to the info provided.
S P E C I F I C A T I O N S:
FACE: Branded, Matte
RECORD: Light Blue
SPEED: 1x to 48x
STORAGE: 80 min/700MB
25, 50 or 100 spindle (some spindle
packaging is actually bulk shrink wrap).
Fujifilm CD-Recordable (CD-R) MADE IN JAPAN discs are the superior choice in write-once optical media. Technical advances abound in the latest line-up of Fujifilm CD-R discs. These discs have optimal archival life, proven prevention against data degradation and high read-back reliability. Rigorous testing has confirmed that Fujifilm CD-Rs are compatible with today’s most popular CD-R writers and CD-ROM drives. Fuji CD-Recordable discs provide a wide range of utilities including distribution of large amounts of data, software distribution, archival and backup of data, and the ability to produce CD-ROM master discs.
Would it be safe to assume these are acutally TY CD-Rs or should I get the unbranded ones that specifically say Taiyo Yuden.
** One last thing, the Taiyo Yuden discs that say Silver Matte Finish, is there a spot on them (pre-inserted line where you place written text to specify what the CD is)? In the image provided below, doesn’t appear to be this way.
