I was in a Compusa store in Towson, Maryland checking out the vaious brands of CD-R and RW media. The TDK, Fuji, Sony, Memorex and Phillips all said Made In Taiwan near the UPC code. Does this mean that none of them are Taiyo Yuden? Also, does Taiyo Yuden make any CD-RW media? I have never seen the re-writables mentioned.

The ones made in Taiwan are not TY media, try locating some of the brands you mentioned, TDK, Fuji & Memorex with the "made in Japan" these are TY media in the USA. I find them randomly in WalMart, BestBuy and Staples.

No Fuji is still using TY, but those are the discs made in Japan. He stated that the discs he saw were made in Taiwan, those are branded as Fuji's but they are CMC media.

None of them are Taiyo Yuden. TY doesn't make CD-RW's
For CD-RW's use Mitsubitshi Chemical or Ricoh.

Yes RJW, that is correct for the CDRW media, in fact almost all of the CDRW media that I've found in all brands in the USA is Mitsubishi Chemical media.

Well that's okay since my verbatim (mitsubithsi Chemicals) rw's still works after 80 rewrites while most other manufacturers (Plasmon, Acer) are giving problems after quite a few writes.

I have been recording VCD's on Compusa brand re-writables and after just 1 or 2 rewrites I get all sorts of blockiness and squelch. The movies are unwatchable. I will have to try some of the Verbatim RW's
and see how they hold up.

The verbatims are good, also I have had luck with the Memorex being very durable, but I believe reading that Clint or Tron (can't remember which) had a problem with the Memorex CDR-W media.
