Verbatim warns about misleading DVD media Verbatim/Mitsubishi Kagaku Media Co. has issues a warning on the company's website about a number of prominent and not so prominent brands in Australia and New Zealand distributing certain types of blank recordable DVDs with MCC MID codes and other information. These DVDs are manufactured without the same quality control and specifications as DVDs supplied by Verbatim in Australia and New Zealand.
The company is preparing to legal action to stop the misleading supply in Australia and New Zealand of these DVDs. An MID, or Media Identification Code, is used on the DVD-R, DVD+R and DVD-RAM recordable media. It is used to identify the manufacturer of the media and to help a DVD burner choose an optimal write strategy.
