    ppl round here dont like memorex because one week you get ricoh, the next week you get crap.
    As long as you purchase +r/rw discs you shouldnt have a problem with your drive

    the ricoh id indicates that you got lucky and got a good batch of memorex this time. the reason people stay away from memorex is because not all of the companies they use to supply their discs are good quality manufacturers. So instead of gambling on what they will get from memorex they buy something like ritek or verbatim.

    From my experience, anything with the Ricoh JPN RO1 ID has been perfect for me, and from others that I've seen post results in the forum.
    As long as they are all in the same spindle or pack, then they should have the same ID. If your 50 is multiple packs then it is possible that one pack may be of a different manufacturer.
    The following link is a pretty good reference for manufacturer ID codes and quality.....
