    Our PC friends have DVDInfo to tell them the actual manufacturer of DVD media. Is there such an application for Mac?
    [Possibly this query is better placed in another forum but I doubt whether the PC people would know. More likely to get the answer from a Mac user]

    According to the babelfish translation of the page - these are
    the system requirements to run the software:

    Enviroments hardware requirement

    Mac OS X 10.3.3

    Super the DVD-R drive which supported Drive and the like of
    Apple, the entry to DVD-R media. We verified operation with
    the following drive.

    IMac (Flat LCD) Super Drive (PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-104
    A227)

    There are times when reading of media information is not
    supported depending upon the DVD-R drive which you have
    used. With the following drive it could not grasp media
    information.

    PowerBook G4 12 inch Super Drive (MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-815)

    Perhaps, it operates even with DVD+R/RW drive, but for the
    present operation is lack of confirmation.

    Hi Londor,

    Wow, thank you so much to *you* for the reference to DVD Media Inspector! It seems to be the only DVD Demystefier for Macs.
    We're using Mac OS 10.3.5, Toast 6.0.7, OWC's FireWire/USB DVR-107D DVD+_R/+_RW. The application worked like a charm.
    A BIG Thank-You to raktajino.
    People who have questions about DVDs should go to this ever-so-helpful site. They even offer opinions, imagine that!
    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm
    We are photographers and worry constantly about burning speed, reliability and longevity of media.
    Thank you again raktajino and Londor.
