CD/DVD Compatibility

TheCartridgeKingdom cannot be held responsible for any media compatibility issues that may arise when you purchase any CD/DVD media from us.

We get countless emails from customers who buy any media and expect it to work in all DVD players and or all CD/DVD Writers. Unfortunately, this is not the case, nearly all problems arise through compatibility issues with the discs & the drives, or the computers setup, whether it is Hardware, Software Burning Program and or the writers “Firmware” which could be either corrupt or out of date. In nearly all cases, this can be rectified by visiting your CD/DVD Writer’s manufacturers website and downloading their latest “Firmware” (free of charge) for your Writer's Model, or by checking the Burning Software Program and or Hardware, set up for any faults.

CD/ DVD media technology is constantly changing, it is impossible to be certain than a specific disc will work in a given drive & that the next batch of media whilst the same brand may be slightly different etc.

It is imperative that the consumer keeps the DVD firmware up to date, what works today will not work in the future as the media / specifications change.  Even with the latest firmware installed, some media may still experience burning/writing issues with some CD/DVD writers, even if no problems existed in the past with the same media.

Alleged "Faulty Media"

Most customers who experience trouble burning media always leap to the conclusion that the media must be faulty in some way. In over 95% of these cases the fault lies elsewhere in their set up, or the media is simply incompatible, not defective. In cases where the customer is adamant that the media is faulty, we have the following test procedure that we follow. We have various test writers (different makes & models with the latest up to date firmware) & various test CD/DVD players. We usually burn 5 discs, 1 in each writer (or in extreme cases 10 discs) then test each disc in the CD/DVD players. We then compare the results to a previous test using the same media (or we run a new test with same media from different batch of the same media and compare results). If the media does not show as defective in our tests, we will not replace or make any refund for the media.  Any unused media will be returned to the customer at the customers own expense.  Note: The only media that usually writes in all writers and plays in all players is media that uses Ritek dye. Other dyes are generally not as universally compatible as Ritek.

We will gladly credit or refund any unused media which is returned to us within 14 days of purchase in original condition eg. no fingerprints, scratches or dirt on the discs. This includes goods ordered in error. Goods ordered in error still need a valid RMA.

If you do experience any compatibility issues with your discs, please stop using them immediately and contact us, we can only offer an exchange or refund for any unopened tubs or stacks or if you have used less than 10% of the original contents.

All discs must be returned in their original packaging and in a good condition, otherwise no refund or exchange can be given.

These "Terms & conditions" do not affect your “Statutory Rights"
