    I have used these in the past an dthey are pretty good. I did go buy a 25 pk. of -r's today and several of them had specs around the outer part of the disc, which is a sign of uneven dye spread. I took them back and swapped them for the +r's and they are much better. Be sure to check them out before you burn.

    I've been using the Ritek RIDATA 4X DVD+R from newegg which come up as RICHOHJPNR01 and was wondering if these verbatim from bestbuy are any better? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    The ones I've got have MCC as the media code.

    MCC is Mitsubishi Chemicals which are suppose to be 1st class media according to http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    I don't know if I quite understand what your asking. If the media code comes up MCC, then they are MCC ... If they come up with CMC, then they are CMC.

    Now, there was a time when some of my Verbatims came up with the CMC media code. I also understand Verbatim got heat for that. Lately all my Verbatims have shown up as MCC. Hope that helps.

    Hey flip218, Thanks for the link to dvd infopro.I usually use verbatim and just ordered 100 of the Digital movie +rs mcc 002. Catfreaks bestbuy site was sold out of the -rs. I also have two other cakes of verbatim: 4x datalife and 8x that I am not sure about,I lost the label. The 8x's are branded and are identified as mcc 003. They are super, the backups from these play in a lot more standalones than my 4x verbs . The +4x's Burn great but some trouble with standalones playing them. The +4x datalife are not branded and the dvd infopro said they were ricojpnr01. The playability of my backus in different standalones shows the different qualities between all 3 verbatims. I just wanted to let other people know some of the problems i face using different media. I also wandered if anybody know the difference between mcc o2 and mcc 03?

    hi catfreak:

    Meritline has Verbatim 8x dvd+R printable to the hub, 50 pack for $39.99. With s/h its about $46.50. These are MCC code. About 2 months ago they were $76 at Newegg and more expensive at Meritline. I have only used these and Riteks purchased at Newegg or Meritline and I'd say these are a notch ahead of the Riteks. However the Riteks can be had for $25 at newegg for 50 pack. Thats about 1/2 the price of the Verbatim. The Riteks also do not include the spindle. The discs are loose after opening the wrapping. Regards...
