Had a Pioneer DVR-A04 on my Mac and PC mid-2002 and was using Apple-branded MCC 00RG20… and after cleaning out my media shelves a few days ago I found one unburned! These cost me about ~$30+ in 5-packs back in 2002, and I bought 10 packs as I was on a shopping spree then! Expensive media but couldn’t remember if I had one coaster (doubt it)! Worked with every client’s player, very happy with it!
The next burner was a DVR-106D in late 2003 and more inexpensive but problematic media (RiDATAs and unbranded cheapos). A lot cheaper at ~$1-3, but a lot less reliable and compatible.
Here’s the virgin MCC 00RG20 I found, Â©2001 (and Made in Singapore). Just needs a little dusting and it’ll go back on the shelf to serve as a testament to the early and expensive days of data backups on DVD media. Who knows, I might burn it one day just for kicks!
