goots, I didn't know you were looking for inkjet printables. I think you have ordered the best discs for your purposes. I am glad you went back and got some 8x. I am no expert, and who's to say the people who's posts I read are either, but in general I have read more positive comments with the 8x Taiyo versus the 16x. That is not to say that the 16x are not good discs,just that some people who "quality scan" recorded DVDs felt they got better results with the 8x discs. This can be due to a lot of factors, and the 16x should be just fine too.. FWIW, I bought the 8x White Inkjet Printables from Rima and am pretty happy with them.
Those ID's we mentioned are Media ID Codes. If you have Nero you can use the NeroInfoTool located in the "Toolkit". Insert the DVD, select NeroInfoTool, select the "Disc" Tab, select the DVD Drive in which your DVD is loaded, and then wait a sec. It will show you the Media ID Code for that Disc.
For example, the Sony 8x MIJ +Rs I bought ID as YUDEN000 T02. These Discs show available burn speeds from 2x all the way up to 16x, even though they are "rated" as 8x discs. The Taiyo White Inkjet Printable DVD-Rs from Rima are TYG02 and they show supported burn speeds from 2x up to 12x, even though they are "rated" as 8x discs. Again FWIW, I tend to burn my DVDs at 8x in occasions where I have control over burn speed.
If you don't have Nero but would still like to know your Media ID Codes, Google and download DVD Identifier, a free program that will do the trick.
Why bother? Well, there are some cases where I have bought DVD Blanks from a "name" company like Maxell on sale (50 for $10 or so). I get them home and find the Media ID Code is Ritek G05. I Google that code, find it has a pretty spotty reliability rating, and decide to return the discs. I guess these particular discs were on crazy sale for a reason.
Anyway, good luck with your Taiyo's. I hope/think you will like them.
