Question about Optodisc 4.7GB DVD Ram Rewritable Media (OM470-200) 2x DVD-RAM Storage Media
I purchased a pack of 12 Optodisc DVD 9.4 GB DVD Ram Discs and I put them away for a couple of years in the cabinet of my office. I currently use DVD-R discs for several purposes. I am using a MacIntosh Power G-5 Tower and a MacIntosh MacBook Pro 17" Core Duo 2, 2.33 Mhz laptop system. Neither of my Mac computers can read the Optodiscs.
Could you please tell me if I can use these discs? If so, what will I have to do to make them usable for me. Can I use them to burn music, backup data, or burn movies? I have sent several emails to the Optodisc Technical Support Dept. and they have not responded to any of my messages for the last 4 months. Your help and technical assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. I hope to hear from your soon. Take care, be well and Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. Cordially, Gregory Eason
According to the manual available on Apple's site (http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/MacBookPro_17inch_UserGuide.pdf)
"Your MacBook Pro can read but not write to DVD-RAM discs."
