Is that a sarcastic statement? smile

I am serious, you cannot rely on those standards, there is a big number of examples in the database.

I apologize if it appeared sarcastic as it was not meant to be. I was serious about the black rings as I have 2 disks that are like that and literally cover the bottom half of the code horizontally (violation) and I wasn't about to submit a guess.

Again, was not meant to be sarcastic.

Thanks, I didn't find that post.
Will try again on my next submission smile

One cannot rely on this, the standards are violated in some cases.

I hear ya! I've seen a few things not to standards, like black rings covering half the codes.

On my last couple of submissions through the "New Disc" form I haven't been able to figure out why I can't submit the BCA data into the appropriate field. I've tried some things I found in the posts like pasting one line at a time, b codes, etc. and it always squawks back at me to "check BCA codes" or the like. I know nothing about coding and don't know what I could be missing? I use Firefox and Hex Workshop Hex Editor to look at the BCA and tried pasting from there also exporting to a text file and copy/paste but won't go through.
Any helpful hints or insight would be very much appreciated.

Just a little helpful hint:
According to the IFPI standards the last 2 digits aren't suppose to contain an I,O,S or Q.

Quote from the guide:

Example: A Mould SID Code of “IFPI A01xx” may be
issued to the operator of a manufacturing plant.
The digits “A01” are unique to the facility operator.
The facility operator must then use the last two
digits to allocate a unique code for each mould.
The code for the first mould might be IFPI A0100,
the code for the second “IFPI A0101”, and so on.
Using alphanumeric digits consisting of the
numbers 0 through 9 and the letters of the Western
alphabet A through Z, excluding “I”, “O”, “S” and
“Q”, the plant has the ability to assign unique
codes to 1,024 different moulds.

Note: Applies also to 4-digit codes, I.E. V9xx.
