Taiyo Yuden DVD-R Blank?

Good People,

I wonder if you could help me out here, I bought 10 blank DVDs, which are supposedly Taiyo Yuden DVDs. Since there is no label on the box, I wonder if these are Taiyo Yuden blanks.
I got the following markings from the blanks:
SM3YRA00304GB
And on the writable side on the DVD:
0620
GD000164
Since I want to use them mainly in my SONY DVD Recorder and iMac burner, I have no way of checking the blanks. Or is there a utility on the Mac side to check blanks?

Thank you.

Have you tried this one yet ? > DVD Identifier V3.2

Thanks for your reply BoSkin but I only have a DVD ROM in my PC
so the DVD Ident. app does not work for me.
Since I do all my DVD burning either on my iMac or on my Sony DVD Recorder.

You’re welcome !

Since I too have my Sony writer, I don’t see any problem here.
Or am I missing something ?

Maybe it’s a standalone DVD-recorder?

Sorry for all the confusion, my Sony is the RDR-GX7 a stand alone recorder.

CD Pirate,

The blank DVDs came in a plain cakebox, nothing on it.
