I did not have much success with the TDK DVD-r 25 pk from CC.
Burned DVD on Pioneer DVR-107R and got a quality score = 5 (out of possible 100)
using Nero CD-DVD Speed 4.50

PI Errors
Avg = 278.80
Max = 448

PI Failures
Avg = .76
Max - 28

Considering this was TTG02 media (usually a high quality code), I was surprised.

Okay, went to Tower Records last week and saw they had a Blank DVD sale, so looked at it last week, but did not buy. Then I finally opted to try one of them out and bought 1 spindle 3 days ago. I noticed that no one has put any comments usually for 15 pack spindles, so it makes me wonder if these are fakes, which would seem a bit odd, but not implausible.
Tried to look on TDK's website to find if Tower was one of the authorized distributers, but no luck. Incidentally, TDK's website isn't all that great.

Anyways, this is the same it seems as the person who did the 2 part review in this board. Mine seems to be similar if not the same as the 1st part of his review, except that mine was purchased at Tower, and is only 15discs. What's interesting is I looked at the label, and it says Made in Japan on a white sticker, but if you look under the white sticker, it says Made in Taiwan. How can it be both? Something is fishy. I was all excited that I got a Japan product from some reviews saying product is better from there. By the way, these are really cheap, so maybe I shouldn't expect much. 4.99 sale. was 5.99 sale before it seems. Not sure what regular price was.

So, I tried to burn 2 discs. Both failed. So, I didn't want to waste anymore time and stopped. First was done at 8x, cause I thought I'd give it a try, since it was labeled as 8x. Nope. So, I slowed it down to 4x. Didn't work either.

Used Nero tools and found it was TTGO2, and have read that these are maybe the legal fakes? I've now already went back to Tower, and exchanged them for another 15pack spindle of TDK brand, but this time it is labeled 1-16x. Will report if these are any good, but will have to be under TTHO2, cause that's what it is identified as.

I noticed that the 8x that I returned was a bit shinier on top than the ones I have now which are 16x. The 16x are more neutral gray/white, and though it does shine if you hit the light just right, it seemed to not shine as much as the 8x, when I had both side by side at the counter. Oh, does anyone know of a forum or site that maybe has a listing of discs that have lasted the test of time, and then ones that have broken down quickly??

Oh, I don't see my DVD burner, so I selected one, but according to what I can see, I have a Samsung SP1604N and it says it's my disk drives, but I don't know for sure. It also says DVDRW IDE1108 for my DVD/CD-ROM drives. I don't know how to tell for sure.

I had good experiences with the +R version of this type. So I recommended TDK to a friend. Unfortunately he bought the -R version.
He could hardly burn one single disc without error (verification after burning was switched on using NERO). He has the LG GWA-4080N Burner. He gave me some discs that were leftover of th 50-pieces box, and I couldn't burn it either on the 4040N ( Remember, the TDK+R version works fine on my burner!!!) But I was able to burn the -R version on the Sony DW Q31 A (this burner is not on the list here yet. But it is built in the MEDION PC MD8800. which was sold in NOV 2005 at ALDI stores in Germany

I bought 100 of these at Circuit City for $7.99 per spindle. I thought the TDK media was supposed to be
great. I have had trouble with these and no longer will buy the TDK brand. I think these may have been
the one's TDK had made by Mitsui. I am not happy with
these.

this is the second of a 2 part review on recent TDK Media.
I am doing this to help other users who might
get frustrated by TDK's recent changes in packaging the
TTG02 media.

First, I'd like to point out this is for TDK branded media that is
sold through Target stores, most often on sale
for $14 a 25 pack, or $40 a 50 pack.

The media can be identified by the attached picture,
orange banded paper label ( old style TDK), labeled as
"Made in Taiwan",
and the top of the silver media says
"TDK VIDEO DVD-R 6 HOURS in EP mode 8x"
( again, see picture).

This media is a bit higher than other places price's,
(such as Circuit City)
but in the two spindles I picked up
at Target, the manufacture on these discs are excellent.
Only 1 disc out of 50 had bad spots in the die, and
made burns on it impossible. Also, the disc that had the bad spots
was at the bottom of the spindle something that is
typical I have found for TDK branded discs.

That alone gets my HIGHEST reccommendation over the Circut City
sold TDK Discs.

Discs will not overburn, but burn comfortable at 8x in my Pioneer-109.
In a Pioneer -107, these burn fine at 6x, and in older Pioneer -104,
these burn fine at 1x speed. Playback is fine also in both
standalone and Macintosh Computers. Full data burns to the edge,
are not a problem wither, adn verify using Toast 6's Compare feature.

If you pick these up, get them on sale, don't pay the regular
price, they also sell these in DVD Clamshell boxes 5packs for $10.
You can mail back the bad discs to TDK direct
(I did) and they will replace them FOC.

Purchased 12 units of these to experiment, found them via DVD Identifier to be TDK, sold as Datawrite Titanium, DVD-r 8x (TTG02) to use in my NEC 3500 external, 2.TD firmware. Burned 4 discs and all took well with no coasters. This is a surprise as my burner is fickle. What also is a surprise is the Datawrite is TDK and I had purchased TDK brand which was not TDK at all and they became coasters. These real TDK burn well, so far.
