    I've recently purchased 100 G05 Ritek DVD-R's from meritline.com. I've been reading the threads finding out that there are Taiyo Yuden and other fakes in circulation. So I wanted to be certain what I bought. I have two drives, so I checked the media code on both drives installed. In doing so, the media code (DVDinfopro)listed, using an NEC 2500 listed as "TYG02", but the media code using an Benq DW822a listed as "RITEKG05" media. What gives? How can I tell which media code listed is accurate? The firmwares I am running is up-to-date on both drives, so i'm baffled. I've burnt 3 coasters using my NEC drive FYI, havent tried the Benq yet. But my assumption is that my NEC drive is having issues with the RITEK media, not sure about the BENQ. I will post results as I reinstall the drive.

    But has anyone in this board run into this? Or am I bugging out. Any information would be gladly appreciated. Thanks all.

    When I put a same 8X media to both burner.

    -Sony 510 (4X) read: burn at speed 1X,2X,4X
    -Pioneed 108(16X) read: burn at speed 2X,4X,8X
    The media brand code unchange

    Those speed may corellate to xxx02 xxx05 , but the TYGxx and RITEKGxx really freak me out.

    The quality of the media is good, but still baffled on why they show different media code using different burners..
