Good evening ladies and gentlemen, thank you for coming tonight!
I've read the other thread about the Verbatim DVD+R 16x, about how to tell if they are CMC, Prodisc or MBI... well, there was me, thinking I knew something about it, when I stumble upon this:
Verbatim DVD-R 16x, 25 pack cake box, Advanced AZO, MCC03RG20, the whole shebang.
First check, Made in Taiwan, so CMC or Prodisc, right?
Second check, tall lip around the cake box, so CMC...
Third check, sans-serif font, so Prodisc or CMC...
Upper part of the case, PP, no rectangle above the recycle symbol; this has a 5 printed on the inside;
Lower part, black, PS, no rectangle above the triangle, but a 6 inside.
So far, so not good!
Next check, the batch code:
Well, whatever, let's take a look at some Infiniti Printable DVD-R I got just the other week, supposed to be MCC...
Ops, MCC they're not, these are CMC-MAG AM3. Dark gray base cake box, PP all over with the 5 inside the recycling symbol, no rectangles here... short lip around the upper part of the cake, different "hub", sans-serif font but looks bold.
Hmm I wonder if the Infiniti DVD+R, also supposed to be MCC are really MCC...
Check, MCC004, same kind of (clearly CMC?) cake box as above.
ZD2651-DVR-T47D, surprisingly close to my original DVD-R Verbies
Just to throw a couple more spanners in the works:
Memorex CMC MAG M01 DVD+R Batch code: CPDR47G-CDMWP02-027
Memorex Printable CMC MAG M01 DVD+R Batch: CPDR47G-CDMWP01-009
So can someone please enlighten me as to who made my Verbies after all? Is CMC using codes other than PAP*/MAP* for MCC or is Infiniti getting their -R from CMC and the +R from Prodisc?
I think I have an headache... :doh:
