Solved Which recording disc is it? - CD or DVD? 3 colors

January 31, 2012 at 17:21:43
Specs: Windows XP, ?
A friend gave me 3 stacks of unused discs. Each stack has a different color on the recording side: Black, Silver and Green. They are all white, and printable.

Which is a DVD and which is a CD? Can I tell without recording a test of each?

If so, what do the colors mean? Can I tell which-is-which without experimenting by recording on them?

Thank you very mech! KEELY

I think you can see some info at the very center of the disk. It may help.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

The recording software should tell you what sort of disk is in the drive without actually recording anything.

✔ Best Answer
The colour of the recording side is irrelevant.

Nero has a free Disc Info tool that will tell you all you want to know about the discs.
