Transparent CDs?

How do they work? I’ve read on here, and it makes common sens, that they shouldn’t…the laser has to reflect.

But…

Muse, a rather well-known British rock band, and a duplication site seem to suggest otherwise…

Anybody know the truth? I don’t have the money to order discs to see…

Welcome to CDF’s:

It’s a gimmick disc. Only part of the disc has dye and reflector on it.

Taken from this link:

Please note: Fan CDs have a maximum capacity of 192mb (21 minutes of audio). Fan CDs meet all Red Book standards and are playable on all CD players and drives.

Were those Mitsuis made by Mitsui (before they were bought by CSI)?
