Ridisc DVD-R 4x (RITEKG04....)
Ridisc DVD-R 8x Blue/Silver (Ritek G05)
Ridisc DVD-R 8x Printable (TTG02)
Ridisc DVD-R 8x Turquoise/Silver (TTG02)

These Disks don't have the same code "TTH01". I found this list on afterdawn. I already have the TDK disks with the TTG02 code but these don't work as good as the TTH01.  I use them to backup PS2 games and the TTH01 work flawless on my PS2.
Anyone else help please.

Thanks

I had bought in the past a 50pack of them and they were TTH01. A friend of mine get them last week and he told that they were TTG02.

What is your burner?

Probably you need to buy branded TDK 8X DVD-R media, just buy one piece to test which media code they would contain

Iggy, I had the same problem.  I was always buying TDK 1-8x Branded DVD-R's which had a media code of TTH01.  When I bought my last pack of 10 I noticed they were not giving me the expected results.  Dvd was always jumping, or finding it hard to read.  When I stuck them into my computer and used DVD Identifier it told me they were TTG02.  After searching many forums I have found out TDK do make these two types.  Although the packaging is the same in every way. Item code, packaging, everything.  I have e-mailed TDK three times and they haven't a clue what i'm talking about.  All I am looking for is to be able to diagnose which ink is on the bleeding disk before I buy them.  Any help guys.  I have a pioneer 108 firmware 1.14

Pioneer 108 is a great drive, if I were you i would install 1.20 firmware.

How about Verbatim media, are even better than TDK.

I have tried to upgrade the firmware on my writer for some time.  Every time I try, the upgrade program tells me "Target not found"  I think it is because the drive came with the computer, Advent T11.  I have tried to find a firmware from the manufacturer, as recommended by Pioneer Support, but to no avail. 
I did try Verbitam, infact they were the first dvd's I ever tried, but I didn't like them.  Don't remember the media code, but they were 1-8x and came in a cake box of 25.  After that I tried Imation, Memorex, and cheapo Mrdata +r, which to my surprise have good results but not 100%.  Then I found TDK from my local store.  I tried dvd-r 1-4x TYG01,  dvd-r 1-8x TTH01and dvd-r 1-8x TTG02.  TTH01 and TYG01 being the best for my needs (which is PS2 BACKUP). 
One question!  If I bought these DVDTYMWP42 Taiyo Yudend from here would they be the EXACT same as the TDK 1-4x TYG01.  Is it the same ink but just different manufacturer?

Thanks for your reply's buy the way. Appreciated!!

How does your drive is being recognized by the system?

TY are excellent media. I just recomment you the Verbatims because they are more easy to be found.

Update:  I have sourced TDK 1-8x TTH01 media.  www.svp.co.uk sells them singular in dvd cases. Cost 69p each but are scratchproof (100 more times scratch resistant) so worth the extra pences.  Work great on my PS2 so bought 50 and another 100 different disks they were doing a deal on. Grand total £54.

. . .  I was always buying TDK 1-8x Branded DVD-R's which had a media code of TTH01.  When I bought my last pack of 10 I noticed they were not giving me the expected results.  Dvd was always jumping, or finding it hard to read.  When I stuck them into my computer and used DVD Identifier it told me they were TTG02.  After searching many forums I have found out TDK do make these two types. 
. . . .

I tried to study in detail the problem with the TTH01 mediacode in this topic here:
http://forum.gravure-news.com/viewtopic.php?t=17694


Then I put online a proposal of
5 "label candidates" to be "genuine TTH01"
here:
http://forum.gravure-news.com/viewtopic.php?t=18039




For the moment I only burn as being "genuine TTH01" mediacode

the candidate n°1:
this label TDK "ScratchProof"

These discs look realy grey and not like the "traditional TDK blue"



or candidate n°2:
DVD-R 8x TDK photo printable:
  
I believe that  these 2 labels are genuine TTH01 because of the results get.



I also bought a 10 pieces spindle of candidate n°5:
It is also a label TDK DVD-R 8x certified, but these are "traditional TDK blue" looking and to my personal experience they show:
- TTH01 mediacode when you buy them in spindles
- and TTG02 mediacode when you buy them in jewel cases
I got some bad results while burning these "blue TTH01" with a NEC 3500 latest firmware 2.1A.
Notice: this NEC 3500 (with the last firmwares) allows to burn the TTH01 code at 16x, but the TTG02 code only at 8x max.

If I burn these "blue TTH01" slower at 8x or 4x, I get better results.


From all this I think that TDK had a problem while manufacturing with their DVD-R 8x. Probably some of the TTH02 dye has been encoded with a TTH01 media code and now these "blue TTH01 mediacode with TTG02 dye" are sold in spindles.
This opinion as to be confirmed by experts ...



Anyway how do you explain this "fantasc" media code reading that japanese people have posted here:

I agree: it is also possible to have a TTG02 code in spindles.
I just report my own and some other people experience.
I bought my spindle of "blue TTH01" at Mediamarkt in Freiburg and an other spindle of "blue TTG02" earlier at Mediamarkt in Offenburg

This demonstrates this "incredible" problem that TDK generated  in the TTH01 mediacode.
This is realy a shame  !!

Sadly, I don't think TTH01 has ever been available here in the US (probably because it's made in Europe; most of what's sold here is made in Taiwan).  TTG02 works pretty well though (always made in Taiwan by CMC).
