I just received some Ridata 16X DVD+R and Ridata DVD+R DL media.
Thanks to Advanced Media (Ritek USA) for providing these samples.
I have yet to see this Ridata media sold retail.

Advanced Media (Ritek USA) has informed me that this Ridata 16X DVD+R should be available for purchase at online stores by the end of November in the US.


#7

I just noticed them today on Newegg for $5.99 for a 5 pack… but $4.00 shipping. Kinda pricey.


#8

I have included 2 pictures of Traxdata DVD+R 16x and Traxdata DVD+R9 DL media, that I receiced from Conrexx some time ago.

#10

@rolling56, it is RITEKR04 and RITEKD01 , same MIDs as the Ridata branded discs, just under the ‘Traxdata’ brand for the European market. :wink:

Thanks Wes and jan70


#13

another variant of RITEKR04, Ridata 16x DVD+R


#14

raygay, why you always get those 16x dvds first… not fair! :bigsmile:
Only Verbs 16x available here. :sad:


#15

The media are from Taiwan or Japan, sometime Hong Kong. It’s not fair here in Singapore too, we only got Verbatim & CMC 16x DVD+R media. :slight_smile:

But then in US you guys got the best price on optical stuffs. drool


#16

can’t agree more!


#17

I got some a couple weeks ago here in Southern California (at the LA Computer Fair). DVDInfoPro shows media as RITEKR04 (image below). Physically, my discs they look a little different than the pics posted above. Have only burned 3 of them; so far all burned ok - using Nero (OEM) on a NEC ND3500AG (with Liggy’s 2.18 Ritek SE FW). I still need to ‘tweek’ my system some as the graphs that Nero CD-DVD Speed produces are not as ‘pretty’ as some I’ve seen here on this forum.

Happy New Year to All !!!
