I bought 2 100 pk spindles of Sony DVD+R & DVD-R for 30 bucks. The package says Made in Malaysia. The DVD-R’s are coded, SONY16D1 but the R’s are D21.
Aren’t the SONY D21 supposed to be made in Taiwan? If so, I am concerned about bothering with codes if they are not accurate.[/QUOTE]
Actually, during the last year or so of Daxon manufacture the Sony D21s were made in both Taiwan and Malaysia. But since Sony’s primary subcontractor for blank recordable DVDs, Daxon, exited the media business completely, new shipments of both the 16D1 and the D21 should be MIT once again - and this time, made by Ritek using the Sony codes.
Thus, any leftover MIM DVDs sold under the Sony brand name are leftover warehouse stock.
