    That was the case , if it is anymore I wouldn't speculate

    Saying that I have had better results from the dark purple dye over the light purple..

    yes, backup what herbsman wrote.....

    With the supply of media for ever increasing, it is hard to say - I have had better success using ritek G03/G04 and coincidence or not these disks have a DARKER purple writing surface than the other media I have used, which have had some reading problems....

    So I would tend to agree.....

    well the guy in the local pc shops told me that the purple layer is the writing layer and the more purple means the deeper it is, hence the data is further embeded , for want of a better description, i just wasn't sure if he was just spraffing or not.:>)

    The deeper the colour of purple, the more stable the writing surface becomes as well as containing, maintainng and continuing to hold the data burnt to it.
