Synchrotron X-ray high-resolution measurements have been performed to investigate the nature of the insulating state of a quarter-filled quasi-one-dimensional conductor (DI-DCNQI) 2Ag and the π-d interacted conductor (DBr-DCNQI) 2Cu. The two-fold structure in the ground state of (DI-DCNQI) 2Ag system consists of not only charge ordering columns but also monotonic charge dimerized columns caused by frustration among DCNQI columns. On the other hand, Cu salt in the insulating phase realizes a commensurate structure where the Cu charge ordering is coupled with the 3c-CDW in the insulator phase. The frustration among charged columns is restrained by the charge ordering of the Cu ions.
