I have tested some Magmedia 2x-40x CDR-80’s, and thinking that they were made by Princo, this is what the ATIP test turned up:
ATIP: 97m 24s 01f
Disc Manufacturer: <b>Taiyo Yuden Company Ltd.</b>
Reflective layer: Dye (Long strategy; e.g. Cyanine, Azo etc.)
Media type: CD-Recordable
Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)
This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Cyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 24s 01f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = <b>Taiyoyuden DX-dye</b>
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 16X (!!!)
That doesn’t look right!!!
The CD-R’s have all the signs of Princo-made discs, including, but not limited to:
- Light blue recording dye
- “CDR-80” label instead of “CD-R80”
- Typical Princo translucent cake box with corrugated base and two “rings” on the bottom of the base
- No inner disc wrapping for discs inside the cake box
- AND… The words “Do not put into direct sunlight. Write with special soft marker pen only” printed in a curved line at the bottom of each of the labels on each disc.
So it seems that Princo MAY be using Taiyo Yuden’s ATIP code! To make things worse, these discs are limited to Smart-Burn = 16x-speed!!!
To confirm that these discs aren’t Taiyo Yudens, these discs DO NOT have the frosted centre hub rings like genuine Taiyo Yudens and they are MADE IN TAIWAN!!!
