[QUOTE=insocks;2542196]Hello, I’m new here. I hope it’s okay where I’m posting this here, if not I apologize in advance. :o
I’m quite desperate and I need help ASAP. I’m super obsessive with my discs so this freaked me out…
I just discovered yesterday that the Verbatims sold here in Argentina are RITEKF1. All of them, the recent ones I bought that look like this: http://a.imageshack.us/img709/4338/ca5830282enl.jpg
And old ones (from 2007 and 2008) that look like this: http://a.imageshack.us/img713/8860/dvdrverbatim.jpg
And I think this has been a problem in most, if not all, of Latin America for a few years.
I checked other DVDs I have and the Imations say the manufacturer is Verbatim and the ID is MCC 03RG20, but I don’t know if that’s true , and the Sony are D21 000.
Now, I know Verbatim are supposed the best, but not here. Taiyo Yuden are not available here and I can’t buy them online.
I just would like to know which one would be the best choice between the ones I mentioned (Sony-D21 000 and Imation-MCC 03RG20), if they are good at all.
I go check which other brands are available tomorrow, aside from those like Ridata and other with strange names which aren’t good at all.
I think they might have TDK, but not sure about how good are those. I believe JVC too, but I’m not sure if the exist… I just think I saw them once, but not sure.
I’ll appreciate any help since I need to make a BIG purchase soon to make back-ups of all my discs.
Thank you very much!
If the MCC 03RG20 is real then that is your best choice but you said you are not sure. Let us know what you find tomorrow, JVC is now Taiyo Yuden made. Do you ever use +R? If you can, I would suggest using +R.
