    Everyone seems to be very positive about Taiyo Yuden media.
    I have had issues with certain media in my stand alone player that's hooked up to the TV. It will not play Sony discs that I burn on the computer. FujiFilm discs, I find will burn and play well about 95% of the time. But they are expensive to buy at Bestbuy and besides I'd like to get a better success % than what I'm getting.
    I'm looking to buy a 100 pack of blank media and see the best deals on the internet.
    How can I be sure that Taiyos will play well in my stand alone if I go ahead and buy them?
    I'm looking at Rima.com's price which is as follows:
    Item No : 1736-100
    Capacity : 4.7 GB
    Speed : 8X Maximum
    Surface : Silver Lacquer (Shiny Silver)
    Manufacturer ID : TYG02 or TY02
    Features : Thermal printable surface for CD/DVD thermal printers, but not recommended for Rimage Everest
    Compatibility : For drives/recorders supporting DVD-R format

    (Some drives/recorders may require a firmware update)

    Packaging : 100 pcs in two 50-Pack cakeboxes

    Is that Manufacturer's ID reliable and a good manufacturer?

    Knowing little about media I would like some feedback on the above media, and some thoughts on how it will perform in my player.

    What I'm wondering is, is the product that I mention above, the media that so many people are talking about and are the odds good that it will it play reliably in most players?
    It has little to do with cost, although I don't want to spend $50 and find that it's not either the high quality Taiyo Yuden, or that it won't play in my player.

    Gringle - what's your 'prob'? 'Yer' the most ignorant person I've run into on this forum.
