If you do this you can see ATIP information:
1. Put a blank disk in the drive. (This example uses a Fujifilm 48x, USA market).
2. In your Nero software group, select Nero Toolkit, then select the program CD Speed.
3. Once in "CD Speed" select the "Extra" pull down menu then click on "disk info"
You will see something like this:
Manufacturer: Taiyo Yuden
Disc Type: CD-R
Recording Layer: Dye Type 1: Long Strategy (Cyanine, AZO)
Recording Speed: n/a
Capacity: 79:59.72 703 MB
Additional Capacity: n/a
Overburn Capacity: 82:27.07 (724 MB)
This information comes from the so-called ATIP region of the disk. The two data fields thought to be at least somewhat reliable are the "Code:" and the "Capacity:". Taken together they are often used identify the disk version. In this case the pair 97m24s01f, 79:59.72 is found on Taiyo Yuden 40x and 48x CDR's in the USA market. Fuji is the OEM customer of Taiyo Yuden. There are lists that relate manufacturers and product versions to this data pair. For example in John's extensive review of the CRW-F1DX he presents an ID table like this for the media he used.
