Thanks


#3

Thanks for the info! From what I can recall the 50 pack dvd+r media is RITEK F16. The 100 pack spindles were RICOHJPN R03. But who really knows until you open up the spindles. :wink:


#4

Would the country of origin (Made in Xxxx) be an indication?

I may take a shot at the Rich Japan offer, the Verbatims MCC 004 media I have purchased ober the past six months have been awful, regardless of what I purchase or which burner I use.

That may be a signal that it’s time for a change.
I’m willing to give these offers a shot, if the package says “Made in Japan”.


#5

Thanks for the heads up.


#6

thanks! I was hoping some of their DL material would be 25.99 (for 25 pks) again…but the cd-r deal will do for me to replace my dwindling Fuji/Taiyo/from kmart stack.

None will say MIJ, RICOHJPN R03 is made in taiwan is the best you can hope for. Also dont expect these to compare with Verbs, even so so verbs are much better then Ritek. RICOHJPN R03 is rare with these.

Thanks for that input.
[B]RICOHJPN R01[/B] were MIJ, I think. These were my best burns, ever, all be it 8X.
I have not been pleased with Verbs MCC 004 lately.
I buy 50PK spindles MIT with the “Times New Roman” fonts on the top and they have not yielded the results I see posted in these forums with [B]any[/B] of my burners. Maybe I should try the “Arial” fonts (Prodisc, supposedly).


#9

:iagree:I have found this to be true, and Ritek F16 and RicohJpn R03 burn very well for me, and they are both MIT and have never been MIJ:disagree:.

Excellent Job

Unfortunately they don’t burn that well here for me…
their acceptable but that’s about it.

I’ve had much better luck with the CMC MAG AM2 -R in the Ativa packaging at OD


#12

Thanks! Quantity limits?


#13

[QUOTE=MrMoody;2085168]Quantity limits?[/QUOTE]

This is a regular weekly sale, so there are no quantity limits that I am aware of.


#14

walked in the store this afternoon. bought my 3 packs. all i could find. paid for them. and walked out. too easy. thanks for the heads up on this one.


#15

I took a chance on one pack this morning and thankfully I only bought one pack.

Thsi media is [B]RITEK R05[/B] and true to form it produced my worst burn ever.

RITEK R05 and RITEK F16 are newer codes that are often poorly supported by most burners. You might need to try a strategy swap to RICOHJPN R03, or if using a Nexperia BenQ, turn solidburn on in order to use this media.


#19

wow. went to do a disc quality check and CD/DVD Speed said my drive does not support that function. have to fix that now when i get home from work. the three 50pks i bought yesterday are RICOHJPN R03.


#20

I picked up a 50 pack yesterday as well.

They code out as RicohJpn RO3’s

Should’ve bought two. :slight_smile:
