Ritek vs. RiData

#1

Is there any difference between Ritek DVD+RWs and RiData DVD+RWS. Sorry to put this question here, but I couldn’t find a media forum like we used to have.


#2

There may be, if you look at the media code of the discs using DVDInfoPro.

should be the same , ridata is a ritek brand.


#4

Here is our Media Forum. And why not use DVDIdentifier? :wink:


#5

Well Ridisc is also a Ritek brand, but these sometimes have Prodisc dye.

Something on Ritek and branding here

Yeah I read about some of the CDF vs. NW issues, if that’s what you’re getting at. However I’d already donated and was using DVD-IP in ignorance.

I suggested DVD-IP out of habit in this particular case, but it’s useful if you want to check burn quality and don’t have a LiteOn PC recorder.

RiDisc are a brand owned by Datasafe-hence the occasional use of other brand discs


#8

Maybe my source was wrong then. KDH, do Ritek have nothing at all to do with ‘Ridisc’? Was the name bought by Datasafe or something, or is it just a coincidentally similar naming strategy?

I remember once there was a guy had a shop at Clapham Common, and called it ‘Sellfridges’ (because he sold fridges). You can imagine he wasn’t allowed to keep that name for long.

Taken from http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/190/5

“E Net distribution is very large in Europe and owns brands like Datawrite, Datasafe, Bulkpaq, Budget, Rivision and Ridisc as shown here…”
“And here is some of the later additions to their list of brands, Tuff disc claims to be more scratch resistant than other media.”

Ridata, Traxdata and Arita are alll owned by Ritek themselves

Been having a similar discussion to this on another forum

Don’t confuse Ridisc and Ridata…two different animals!!

I’d been using Ridisc x4 (Purple/pink/silver face) and they were all Ritek dye, now I’m using the Ridisc x8 (blue/silver face) and they are not Ritek dye.

That said, I’ve not had a bit of trouble from them-I’ve burned well over 200 of them and not a single failure.

I also fell into the trap thinking that just because the Ridisc have on the packaging Manufactured by Ritex Taiwan, they must be Ritex disc’s, but running one through DVDinfo I find they are RICOHJPNR01.

pothole

Hi,

What is the difference between Ritek and Ridata?
Ritek is the manufacturer and Ridata is Ritek’s own brand name. Ritek Ridata stands for the top quality version of Ritek DVD media.
