This information that I am posting now will most likely just add more confusion, so don’t read this unless you are very familiar with the media world. (And it only applies to Europe.) I’m posting it though, assuming that it could be valuable information for some at least.
The Verbatim “normal” (DataLifePlus) 8x DVD+R (MCC 003/02RG20) were sold as “Advanced AZO”. The Pearl White 8x DVD media was sold as “AZO” (not Advanced!) if they had CMC codes, and did not have neither Advanced AZO nor AZO if they were the Ritek ones.
(This does not apply to 16x; the 16x Pearl White media was Advanced AZO+ MCC media, made by Moser Baer India.)
