What have you just bought? CD/DVD related or otherwise

25DMR47RS4 - Sony DVD-R 4.7GB 16x (25) - MID SONY16D1 - Made in Malaysia


Made in Malaysia? Never seen it before. Maybe from Daxon?

The quality is 6/10, RITEKF1 has better results, about Daxon, I don’t know.
This is the stamper Code: DRM5GG0001 4C

I though Daxon was based in Taiwan.

Daxon was active in other country

And the violet one is already burned :wink:

Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 Μαύρο (Black)

Verbatim CD-R 700MB 48x (AZO)
MID: 97m34s23f
Stamper Code: ZE4360-CDR-A80A-AZO


Huh, which drive only allows max. 24x speed with this media?

One more thing, these discs are Made in China, for Japanese Market.

OK, the 208 is a 24x CD-R-drive

Didn´t know Verbatim use a chinese manufacturer for CD-R, but don´t use CD-R often since I have DVD

The United States and Europe have some Verbatim Azo CD-R Made in China in the market but these are 52x.

The last Verbatim CD-R 52x I get was MBI-made with MBI-ATIP.

LITE-ON iHBS112-04, reworked from 37 2, but HW rev 01, so no need to toggle speed to scan in ODC.

The new serial number is different by 7 digits from the original one, that can be see on the original sticker underneath, so there is a mismatch between sticker and software that has the original one.

I saved the drive from being scrapped, I collected it together with a giant Chieftec chassis (6 5.25" drive bays).
Considering the burn count, the drive is in mint condition:

The Traxdata should be good to see if blank media degrades as quickly as burned one, IIRC most of Ritek BD-R 2x media became unreadable after some time?

Is Sony MIJ a stable media for archiving?
