Hi,
This is my first post and like to ask your advice.
Just bought a 100 spindle TY silver dvd-r and there is no mention on the package where it’s made.
On the disc there is the code GG000095 and another wich i can barely read,i think 0602.those numbers are the same on all discs then there is the number on the inner ring just by the hole witch is MK425E06352GG?those are all different.
Are these real or fake taiyo yudens.
Please let me know if i bought real or fake

This is with dvd indentifier:
Manufacturer name:Taiyo yuden Co.ltd
MID : TYG02

They sure are real :slight_smile:


#3

thank you,
now i’m happy because they cost 70 euro for the 100 dvd-r


#4

dang, thats kinda pricy


#5

Well if it’s the real deal i can live with that.
I was just worried they where fake.


#6

not in the EU, thats cheap
SVP sell 100 TY tubs for £60 each, thats about $100+ (or $1 each)


#7

i bought them from dvdrohlinge24.com,they are now for sale for 70,79 euro and os-mediatrade.de has them for 69,60 euro


#8

70.00 EUR Euro = 94.3215 USD United States Dollars

that is kinda pricy, but since there qulity disc’s i guess ur not to worried

i usally wont pay more the 0.40 cents a peice

i do know over there vat is a killer


#9

I like to buy good quality disc so that in the future the dvd’s still work.
My brother bought princo’s and there are some of them not working any more.


#10

just reading that name hurts my brain lol

the princo name that is, yuck, have heard nothing but bad bad things


#11

yep,i told him so but he wouldn’t listen so now he nows why i tried to convince him to buy quality dvd’s so his home made movies have a long life.


#12

well its also how u store them as well

i going buy some DL media today, as well as some 16x media too

see the 16x media is about 90 cents a peice, so about the same price as u paid for ur 100 pack if sold by the slice (per disc)


#13

the ones i bought so far where the verbatim pastel (taiyo yuden ) , fuji (taiyo yuden ) ,a few years ago the mam-e when they had good dvd’s and now the silver dvd’s.


#14

I store them in a amaray dvd box so that is good i think
I’m planning to buy a 16x burner this summer,i now have the plextor 708 witch is a very good burner.


#15

I believe it’s the best option to store them.


#16

The 2 numbers on the disc 1 starting with gg and the other ending with gg can they be also be faked or just the mid code?


#17

There is no record of anyone faking TY serial numbers on their discs; that probably would be illegal. They use the media code to improve their discs’ compatibility, not to try to pass them off as Taiyo Yuden discs.


#18

Ok,then when i buy new ones i just have to check the gg on the disc to be sure i have the real deal.
That’s good to now.
