    A buch a DVDR i ordered just arived today, Ritek DVD-R and Taiyo Yuden DVD-R i havent used any of them yet.

    However the Taiyo Yuden discs look pretty badly made, by this i mean the glue holden the dvd together looks pretty dodgy coming over the edges...is this usual and/or effect the disc quality in any way?

    They are Taiyo Yuden Discs i checked with DVDIdentifier, Taiyo Yuden is the manufacturer...

    Thanx for any input!

    Hey Helfire,

    Honestly, it really doesn't seem to be a widespread issue, hopefully.

    Taiyo Yuden disks are consider of great quality here on aD (AfterDawn), so with the set that you received, it may have just been a bad batch.

    The problem, doesn't seem to be normal, but I could be wrong, but most people around here use them and they are of very high quality.

    Is there any way you can possibly return the TY and get them exchanged for a new set?

    ;)

    Got them from www.mediawrite.ie...dont get me wrong they're prob good, but just by looking at them they dont look as good as i thought they would be concidering the phrase they get here...but i'll give them a try anyway and see.

    Not gonna bother sending them back they were cheap enough anyway, sure i'll see how i get on with them.

    Thanx

    If they are real TY, then I have yet to burn a coaster on them. If your discs look "dodgy" (I love that word, I'm going to steal it and use it)then it is possible they are fake, even if the media ID checks out TY. Also, nobody is perfect, even TY can produce a couple hundred bad discs out of millions.

    The use of the word "dodgy" is why I figured you were across the pond LOL

    @Hellfire,
    No where on that site do they advertise Taiyo Yuden disk's www.mediawrite.ie So I am just curious which brand is it you bought that checked out as TY's? Here is one way I have been able to ID TY's look for a number right where the dye starts on the data side (between the hub and the ink). you should have a number like GG000xxx or GD000xxx. If you don't have that marking then most likely your disk's are fakes..
