I just bought 2x100 DVD-R's from Verbatim:
I'm a little bit confused now. First of all they are made in Taiwan. So I wanted to check the quality of verbatim made in taiwan and so I found on the german wikipedia version something I don't really understand.
First of all the CD-Information I get with Nero CD-DVD Speed:
Then I read on wikipedia that there are 2 codes on the disc you can read (on the surface):
The stamper code and a code on the inner ring.
The stamper code is: ZD9955-DVR-J47F4
That seems so far ok, because it is said in the article the code of Verbatim is ZD...-DVR-...
But than the code in the inner ring (it's on the plastic in the middle, hardly readable) confuses me.
Here is what it is said about the inner ring on wikipedia (I translated it for you):
My inner ring is like the second one (9 numbers - 9 numbers). So is it said being made by the manufactor prodisc??? But the media ID says it is made by the manufactor MMC (Mitsubishi Chemical Coop.)
I'm now confused...what kind of discs do I have here and what is the quality?
On this list I found the media code but not under "prodisc", that is what confuses me:
Is is mentioned the MCC03RG20 under Mitsubishi Chemicals/Verbatim country Singapore, Taiwan, India ... so far it would be ok...but that prodisc confuses me very much.
Many thanks for answers that can tell me if I had bought good quality media or crap
