    Hi all,
    I bought a 50pack of Ritek G04 from a wholesaler and have found out that they are all skipping when being played back on my set top player. I used DVDinfo pro and the media code is Ritek G04.
    My question is: Can this code be faked?
    Does Ritek sell unbranded media? If they dont, then I reckon thats where I was dupped!
    Also, does any one know of the brand MAXMAX?
    Are they any good?

    Thanks in advance

    All media codes can be faked. These days it also seems like they're all being faked...

    It's also possible that your media isn't fake, but simply not very good. Maybe Ritek licensed the code to someone else, or maybe they decided some batch wasn't good enough to be sold under their own name and let someone else sell it instead.

    I could go on about why I think people read way too much into media codes, but I suspect I'm beginning to sound like a broken record. For those who care, see my last post in this thread:

    Basically, if you want Ritek media, buy it from one of their in-house brands (Ridata or Traxdata), as they're the only brands Ritek vouches for.

    My last batch of RiDATA G04 did the same thing despite being burned in the same burner and using the same methods I always have. I had to knock the write speed down to 2X to get good results.
