[QUOTE=Francksoy;2060363]Notable exception: the Infiniti (not “Infinity”) brand. Very good MCC discs. At least until recently… I’m not sure what’s the story with Infiniti these days. Our usual european media experts could share some light on this. [B]Pepst[/B]? [B]Arachne[/B]? [B]Dakhaas[/B]? [B]kg_evilboy[/B]? [B]DrageMester[/B]?
Oh and don’t forget the “Mitsubishi” brand. 100% legit MCC![/quote]
Infinity is still no official MCC disc’s these days. Old White tops =>Yes.
New silvers -> NO. (And I wouldn’t use 100% official, because I think Medea ( the companny behind infiniti) used the same construction as E-net does for the datawrite titaniums. If that makes them 100% official can be debated. But the media does use legit stamper, legit code and is made by a manufacturer who is allowed to use it. This would explain why they had to switch very well. )
Most big branded stuff that came in the past with a MCC code was legit. I’m talking about the Sony,Philips, MMORE branded disc’s.
But these days for disc’s using 100% official MCC technology you have 2 options.
1 Verbatim(rest of the world) /Mitsubishi(japan)
2 FTI archival gold.
[B]cd pirate[/B] is right, and it’s worth repeating: the mediacode doesn’t refer specifically to the dye. That’s a widely spread misconception. The mediacode refers to [I]all[/I] of the characteristics of the disc model (thus including the dye used, but that’s only 1 thing among lots of other things like the reflective layer, the bonding agents, the manufacturing process, the polycarbonate… you name it).
Bonding agents are not a part of the media code.
Not completely sure who makes the mediarange disc’s these days. But in the early days they were made by infosmart. Seeing your results Infosmart has improved much, drives are more optimized for stuff with fake codes, or Media range uses a different manufacturer.
