Default How to find out your media ID code & other useful information about your blank media

'DVD Identifier' retrieves and interprets the pre-recorded information that is present on all DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW and DVD-RAM media. This information contains a variety of parameters such as disc manufacturing information and supported write speeds. Even though this information is usually printed on the packaging, the brand name may differ from the actual manufacturer or sometimes there might not even be any packaging information at all.

To Summarize : 'DVD Identifier' offers a reliable method of accurately identifying the disc's REAL manufacturer.

Download it here:

If you would like to contribute to the "Blank Media" forum by posting your experience with a certain brand/media ID. Just open up DVD Identifier, click the "Identify" button, then click the "Clipboard" button to copy the information to the clipboard. Then paste it in to the reply. For the "Subject:", please just use the "Media ID - Brand - Format (ie."RICOHJPN-R01-002 - Sony DVD-R") of the blank media being tested. Thanks!

(If you find a thread with the same media ID, please just post a reply there instead of starting a new thread.)

Alternatively you can use DVD Decrypter for the same purpose. DVD Decrypter will tell you everything but the "media block".

To learn about the DVD Decrypter method, go here: FAQ: How to find out your Media ID Code (and firmware version)
