    All DVD-R and +R I see now in the stores from Fuji and Maxell are made
    in Taiwan and thus are no longer Taiyo Yuden. Recognizing of course I
    can buy TY via the web, I was still curious as to whether are any brand

    name recordable DVDs still use TY. Does anyone know?

  2. Since the vendor is subject to change every time they buy a new
    batch, not clear what good it would do to know who is using
    which OEM today? I'd rather play the lottery.

    NOT true, as I wrote in another thread, I bought one spindle of TY
    from my non regular source and they were made in Taiwan. Said so right
    on the package

    Maybe I'm gullible.
    Said so right on the package - same package also said made in Taiwan.

    How the hell would I know for sure if they were TY ;-^)

    On 24 Aug 2006 14:02:25 -0700, in 'rec.video.production',
    Yuden?>,

    As I recently mentioned in another thread, a few weeks ago I received
    a 50-disc spindle of branded Sony 4.7 GB 16x/1x AccuCORE DVD-R discs.
    The discs were purchased from a local retail outlet, not over the Web.
    The printed packaging stated "Made in Japan" and according to both DVD
    Decrypter 3.5.4.0 and DVD Identifier 4.3.0, the Manufacturer ID is
    TYG03, indicating Taiyo Yuden (TY) media.

    Of course, I have no means of knowing whether Sony uses other sources
    as well.

    In case it hasn't been mentioned here yet, get DVD Identifier from
    http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/
    It'll tell you everything you want to know about your media.
    As far as suppliers go, stick to the online places already recommended here.

    That's Media Supply, for what it's worth, I've been buying from them for
    years.

    I recently bought a 50 spindle DVD+R Sony 50DPR47LS3 from Best Buy that
    checked out as TY.

  11. You are aware, are you not?, that there are several
    unscrupulous vendors making counterfeit T-Y discs?
    I would suspect you have been cheated.

    There are pictures, etc. on the web that show what the
    genuine T-Y packaging look like to avoid being stuck
    with counterfeit.

  12. They are also reputedly counterfeiting the internal manufacturer's
    code which is moulded into the preamle on the disc surface.
