I recently bought some maxwell cd’s and there is a distince odor to them! Has anyone else had this? I have plenty of dvd’s and cd’s but none smell like this. Allmost like coffee LOL! I can’t put my finger on it. When I take of the Plastic Cover thing It hits you!

Thanks! I just never noticed it on any other dvd or cd. Man it’s potent on these!


#4

They must be fresh…

You know you must be at CDFreaks when a group of grown men collect and stand around speaking in hushed tones, then they all fall silent when one of them opens a spindle of freash CDR’s. You can hear them all inhaling in unison. :bow:

Personally, I prefer the smell of TY over Ritek. A more subtle, dreamy aroma. :wink:


#6

ROTFLMAO!

Personally I like the heady aroma of Freshly Pressed MCCs…

“best part of waking up is a freshly burned dvd in you dvd burners cup!”

Yep. To me, TY smell coconuts. The Ritek smell is different, but I like it too, finding some odeur orientale in it.


#15

My 50 pack spindle of Memorex DVD+4x Richo’s smell like anti-freeze.


#16

TY as in Taiyo Yuden?

Woah! They do smell like coconuts.

Crazy.


#17

Yeah I also like the smell of TY CD-R discs - Like coconut :slight_smile:

But I like the smell of ritek DVD-R better :wink: Can’t describe the smell but it’s weird and gooooood :stuck_out_tongue:


#18

Your all going to need counceling! :o

CDFreaks is now offering a support group for media sniffers. We call it “Sniffers Anonomous”. The 1st step is to admit you have a problem. :wink:

The good Ritek stuff has a sweet electrical fire smell to it. The Maxell DVD-R media smells of tropical oils - not the distinct coconut of the TY’s, but perhaps more of a guava-mango combination. :slight_smile: The +R media smells like toxic death, but it’s also good stuff. Most CMC media smells acrid - back to the electrical fire but more bitter; and the Ricohs can resemble microwave popcorn.

Over time, we’re going to be able to peg the manufacturer and quality just by smelling the discs! When I smell acrid factory fire smoke - it’s CMC and time to get the fire hose and blow that stuff down the street. But I’ll sit on the deck with the mango-guava-coconut TY/Maxell party and be happy any day of the week.
