so i was wondring if this proper to have 4 different manufacturers in 1 spindle without telling me on package and refuse to refund money saying its my error…it is not my error im sure of that …

I have never gotten a spindle with different manufactured discs…That sucks :frowning:

Remember this;

Never use Radioshack AGAIN…!

RadioShack is great for cables, connectors, and adaptors. I have never bought media from them and don’t plan to.

i will never use radioshack again…i will be mentioning it to them forsure…then see if they will refund…btw has anyone ever had this problem with dvds showing 0bytes free 0 bytes used???

The only thing you’re missing is princo

all landfill material im afraid

I never got a Ridata -R spindle that was not identified as a G03, G04 or G05 disc. Ridata does not use any of the brands that you listed.


Ridata is a ritek brand and should only be ritek mdia.

Sure ridata was the brand? Seems like someone fooled you off in some way.

Will that be a returened spindle? -.-

Did radioshack actaully sell these as ridata? Was there a ridata paper part?

About a year ago I bought some Riteks that ID’d as ricohjpnro1, but they were terrific media, still some of the best I ever had for 4x media. I now have a mess of Maxells with the same ID and they actually scan better than my ty anb verbatim mcc discs (not a knock against either, they are excellent too).

Ridata does make some +R media with a Ricoh media code, but all -R should be Ritek ‘G’ series discs.
