Re: How to tell if these Taiyo Yudens are authentic or fake...

The packaging was clear; it never specified whether it was made in Japan or not. That's what I enjoyed about the FujiFilms; when I looked in Best Buy, there were always some Japanese ones mixed with the Taiwanese. It was a treasure hunt, that's for sure.

Anyway, I checked the disc info in EAC, and it says that the CD manufacturer is "Taiyo Yuden Company Limited," and the write strategy is "Type 1 (Cyanine: blue/green)". So I guess that's a definitive answer...but I've learned to ask for second opinions before I get too comfortable.
