Taiyo Yuden CD-R codes?

hello, i’ve seen posts describing dvd±r codes, but i cant seem to find posts with complete cd-r codes. im compiling a list for reference so a complete list of taiyo yuden cd-r codes would be excellent. it would be nice if the list can be formatted as: rated speed, format, MID, inner hub code.


bumpity bump :slight_smile:

The CDR’s are best identified by the nominal capacity (lead-out code). there’s only 4 that I know of. 16x, 24x and 40/48x, and audio. The 16x was later rated for 24x, and the 24x was later rated for 32x, and the 40x was later rated for 48/52x. The current crop of “multi-use” and audio CDR’s carry the code for the 24x media and usually have speeds limited to 32x in most firmware. (16x in some).

Anyway, 48x is 79:59:72
24/32x is 79:59:73 (as is audio/multi-use)
16x/24x is 79:59:74

That’s a current 48x CDR.

my 52x rated Verbatim Pastels have the same MID and capacity figures.

@all: Note, that the Write Speeds displayed show the capabilities of the drive used for this check with this media. With other drives you will get different figures.
