He wrote Taiwan :wink:

Dunno if Mitsubishi still manufacture in Singapore, all Verbs I get in the last year were from India, Taiwan and UAE

It seems Verbatim still produces DVD and BD media in Japan for the enterprise archival market but the prices for the blanks and the drive are unbelievable:
http://archive.shop-pro.jp/?pid=101685622

DVD-R spindle of 50 pcs. ~ 150 eur + tax.
BD-R 50GB spindle of 25 pcs ~ 300 eur + tax
BD-R 100GB spindle of 25 pcs ~ 730 eur + tax
Pioneer BDR-PR1MC-P ~ 1700 eur + tax

Are this Mastering/Authoring media?

The only Japanese Verbatim I had in the last >10 years were BD-R DL Printable with Panasonic-MID. Some years earlier I had Verbatim DVDs with TY-MID. Can´t remember any DVD-media which was made by MCC Japan

I think it is archival media - from what I could understand (using google translate) BD-R media is rated for 200 years of storage.

Here is link for supported media for the Pioneer drive:

Only few specific types supported…

Also the MC version of the drive supports BD scanning with Pioneer proprietary utility:

Hope the drive will also last so long :wink:

The drive looks like a simple retail Pioneer-drive, but who is “VAM”?

To bad that the utility is not for standard-Pioneer-drives
