For all my Canadian friends, I bought a pack of Precision branded DVD-R discs at the local dollar shop (Dollarrama) to use as test discs for some video compilation burns. Much to my surprise, IMG Burn identifies them as MCC 03RG20, same as my Verbatims. Now I'm sure these are seconds or rejects from the Verbatim factory, but for $3.00 Canadian for 10 they could make a good little disc for minor projects, and even as seconds should be better than any CMC disc.

That is just a manufactor's code.
Nothing to do with Verbatim.
Yes it is a manufacturer's code or media code. The same code as you find on the "GOOD" Verbatim discs that everyone recommends. It is the code for Mitsubishi Chemicals, Mitsubishi-Kagaku Media, (Verbatim), and according to long time forum member Lord Smurf, the best discs to buy. So it means a lot.
As I said in my original post, I'm not sure if these are factory seconds or even fakes, but was very interested in seeing them sold in this way.
I plan on burning a couple in a day or so, so I'll let every one know how things turn out.
DVD Identifier gave me this: Manufacturer -- Mitsubshi Chemical Corp.
Manufacturer ID: MCC 03RG20
The discs look and feel like the Verbatims I have (with the same code), only difference is that instead of Verbatim on the disc, they say Precision. So as of now, I'm accepting that I got 10 VErbatim quality discs for $3.00 Canadian (This does work out to $30.00 per 100 about the regular cost of Verbatims anyway.) Currently 100 AZO Verbatims are $29.99 on Amazon.
Not sure if the next 10 pack I buy will be the same code or not.
Verbatim are like Kellogs.
