Is all Taiyo Yuden DVDR-/+ media Made In Japan? Just purchased a 100 spindle of Printable 8x DVD+R from “OS-Media Trade” and it dosen’t state anywhere that these discs are Made In Japan. Anyway great discs with outstanding scans…just curious if they are relly Made In Japan?

Media code is:

Yo-

Looks as if you have the real thing - and yes all TY media is made in Japan (for now)-

Yes that serial indicates authentic Taiyo Yuden discs. :wink:

I have plenty of genuine T-Y media that doesn’t have any "Made in … " markings on it.
