    Meritline has the 100 Pack Verbatim (94854) 8X DVD-R White Inkjet Hub Printable on sale with free shipping. If the picture is right they are made in Singapore. Would these be by MCC,CMC or Prodise and wuold they be better then ones from Taiwan?

    If they are made in Singapore, they should be MCC. CMC and Prodisc are made in Taiwan.

    MCC is supposed to be better, yes. I haven't had my hands on any of the single layers for about a year, so at this point I can only really hazard a good guess.

    The Datalife series is subcontracted.

    Datalife Plus use to be the really good stuff (Mitsubishi or Taiyo Yuden), but that's not always the case anymore.

    I just purchased a 100PK spindle of the Verbatim DVD's. Label reads made in Taiwan. I checked a blank disc with the program called DVD IDENTIFIER, downloaded from Softpedia.com. The manufacturer ID: reads MCC.

    If it's made in Taiwan, it's just an MCC code that's allowed to be used (likely by CMC when it's sold under Verbatim's name) by Verbatim. Mitsubishi's plant is in Singapore. So, what you have is not the really, really good stuff, which is hard to find anyway now.

    If it's made in Taiwan, it's made by Prodisc or CMC. I haven't heard of Prodisc using the MCC code (but I suppose it's possible). If they're made in India, they are made by Moser Baer. If it's made in Singapore, then it's made by Verbatim (Mitsubishi's plant); some people refer to this as "real" Verbatim.

    I thought Singapore only made their DL discs?

    Singapore and India (Moser Baer) . . .

    The +R DL stuff is usually coded MKM xxx

    No one in here is talking about DL.

    The ones from Singapore are the best, but they also make them in India and Taiwan. Just the D/L discs now, all the S/L discs shoud be Made in Taiwan for the good ones, although some MII are good also.

    I don't believe any Verbatim +R DLs are being made in Taiwan. Regular single layer discs, yes.

    Some of the 8x single layers were made in Singapore. In the U.S., it's a little trickier finding Made in Singapore single layer discs.

    I understand that. But steve61617 said:

    No. They also made single layer 8x discs, but they tend not to be found in most general stores in North America (probably old stock).

    I'm not sure if single layer media is still made in Singapore, but it once was.

    The only Verb S/L Discs I have ever seen here in the USA were MIT. Either Prodisc or CMC but all made in Taiwan.;)

    Yeah, most in the U.S. are MIT.

    Well, perhaps I should clarify. Some 8x blank dvds (single layer) were made in Singapore.
