Dvd identifier- identifying a disc's real manufacturer.

Dvd identifier offers a reliable method of accurately identifying a disc's real manufacturer. 'dvd identifier' retrieves and interprets the pre-recorded information that is present on dvd (dvd+r, dvd+r dl, dvd+rw, dvd+rw dl, dvd-r, dvd-r dl, dvd-rw, dvd-ram), hd dvd (hd dvd-r, hd dvd-rw, hd dvd-ram) and blu-ray (bd-r, bd-re).

Who Makes the Disc — Brand vs. Media ID

The thing that must be realized is that most media is produced by a relatively small number of factories, located in several different places. These factories are mostly present in Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, India, some European locations. There are more, but those are the largest ones. The best media generally comes from Japan, Taiwan and Singapore. The worst typically comes from China, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Also understand that the media brand means nothing. Apple is a great brand, but they do not make their own discs, instead outsourcing to a company like Mitsubishi Chemicals. Companies like Memorex, Maxell and Imation all outsource to media vendors. .

It is the media ID that is important, as it reveals the disc manufacturer. Unfortunately, this is not written on packaging or anywhere else. Companies want consumers to be oblivious to this sort of behind-the-scenes information. To learn the media ID code, a blank disc must be put into a computer DVD burner drive and the ID read by a special utility.
