This media code borrowing/faking has been going on for a while, and neither Taiyo Yuden [who also has had its media codes borrowed without knowledge] nor Mitsubishi Chemicals has specifically done anything about it as far as lawsuits goes.[/QUOTE]
TY in the cd-r ages has taken compannies to court. Ty has threatened brands, distrbuters and manufacturers in case of code abuse, with quite some succes.
MCC,Maxell,Sony and Ritek have taken some actions as well. Specially Ritek.
TY and Ritek would do it. The difference is Ritek would act fast, but constructive. TY would take extreme long time of finding out and then already talk directly about legal consequences.
This is done. But the point is that it’s not that easy like Albert says.
I’ve seen media with borrowed/faked code which is as good as untrackable.
The big compannies do not act if they are not completely sure of how the thing works and who is involved.
My experience with Daxon was that they scan, really nice, but playback compatability was quite bad. I’ve had quite some problems with devices not recognizing that there was a disc in a device, while that disc scanned beautifull. Reason for me to not recommend Daxon. Now in Daxons defens I have to say that the Daxons used were of a cheap ass brand.
Default strategy means not the maximum burn speed. (So much for the advertised 16x media, which burns only at 2.4x !). ALso in most cases the default strategy burns initially with worse quality.
In some cases drives do not have a default strategy !
