The problem with taobao is that most people outside of China can't buy from there. It would also be more helpful if you linked to actual listings rather than just mentioning the site.

I'm based in The Netherlands. What's the best place I can get some 8cm disks at a decent price?

If you could bear long time shipping, Chinese Taobao is a choice.

Cheaper than what I expected!

Comments seems to tell they are good enough to be read on unadjusted laser pot's gamecubes, can you confirm this?

I have got some new 8cm discs offered as Taiyo Yuden but I think they are fake. The mastering code is DVD-R 4S014.

My Plextor PX-716A detects it as AML. But the weird thing is my other drive ASUS BW-16D1HT detects it as TYG02. How can the same disc output two different media code blocks on different drives?

EDIT: Already toasted first 2 discs and will not try the 3rd. I will send them back.

Well, the Ridata mini DVDs, which are the best for the Cube. I would say the ridata ones are the original DVDs for NGC backups.
they are so rare in these parts of Latin America, that I found a Zelda TP in Portuguese, and I ended up adopting it as a Boot DVD. it is so old that it is not even read by Dolphin. it doesn't even pass the initial CGI, but it serves to boot.
I realized that the reader suffers much less with Ridata than with my cut full DVDs.

I have got these Emtec discs now: https://www.ebay.de/itm/323963185584

They have the MID OPTODISCR004. I have burned using an ASUS BW-16D1HT v3.10 but they aren't working either. I have reduced the the Laser to 50 Ohm, still no luck with them.


EDIT: I'm considering something like that: https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/gp/product/B002TKI5O2/

But with 8cm diameter to punch full size DVDs. Do someone have experience with cutting DVDs?

Whats wrong with the Aliexpress ones? I have these and they work 90% of the time I would say which is great. These days I just burn Swiss discs for several NGC I repair and mod.
I also found an old Viper NGC case so that it can read full size DVD :D No idea how much that is worth now but I paid like 60€ back in the days...
