Maxell 5x & 12x DVD-RAM manufacturer

#1

Who is a manufacturer of 5x and 12x Maxell’s DVD-RAMs?
Is it Maxell itself (in Japan facility) or Optodisc (who was OEM manufacturer of some of their 2-3x DVD-RAMs)?
Thanks :bow:

I have some Maxell 12x DVD-RAM discs here. The discs came from Japan but nowhere does it say made in _. Plus i don’t read Japanese :bigsmile:
