[QUOTE=Yup Done;2057779]I need to find a piece of software which will allow me to compare
the maker/batches of CDs/DVDs. I remember years ago software
and databases of who made what was available; it seemed a good
parlor trick, and a way to avoid the crappiest of the crappy.
Does such software still exist?
Thanks for your help.[/QUOTE]
What do you mean? If you need a software to identify the real media manufacturer and then to see another users’ experiences with that kind of medium you should use DVD Identifier which can directly access the media database of videohelp.com.
If you need only to identify the real manufacturer, you can use Nero CD DVD Speed or DVD Info Pro
