The rarest/most obscure recordable medium



Wow !




That´s very rare media, I guess


ATIP 97m20s14f (unknown)
stamper code “RE BM700 CDA Made in Germany 0304”


Nice cyanine CD-R, made by CDA Datenträger Albrechts GmbH. These are becoming very rare.


Here’s some rare media. Made in Mexico by Kodak.


I was lucky to find and buy online some very old Swisstec 1-4x DVD+Rs ( POMSA001-0R-000, made in Switzerland in 11/2003) and Commax 8x DVD+Rs (VDSPMSAB 002 001, unknown producer and country of origin, no hub or stamper code).


Very nice :slight_smile:

Hope you will find a good writer for this media


Monarch DVD+R 4x, 10-Pack
no hub code, stamper code: DVD+R 81 (on the outer edge)

Maybe from Skymedia?
Quality is poor to crappy.

The better burns: BenQ 1620/1640, Pioneer 212
The worst burns: Plextor 712/755, Optiarc 5240

Also the better burns don´t run smoothly on standalones.



Made by Monarch Photonics Corporation, a very small manufacturer from Taiwan.


You will find many burns from me in the Interaxia-section

Did your Benq also give up if you burn it 2,4x or 8x? My Plex 716 like it a bit


Looks wonderful.


HD-DVD :heart: wonderful.

Are there still some CD-RWs at speeds other than ×8-×12 high speed? (1,2,4,16,20,24,32).


Pretty colourful scans.
:black_small_square:Why did the error rate junp up at precisely 1.5GB?
:black_small_square:Monarch looks like CD-R.



I had this RW, made by Infodisc.
After the burn o.k., but unreadable after 1 year.


Was that CD-RW burned just once?
Is it detected as blank?
How many errors does it have?


Elta Medi@ also produced some rare CD-R’s.
