M-DISC - The Perfect Long-Term Archive Solution
The OWC Slim USB 3.0 External Optical 8X DVD/CD Burner supports the revolutionary M-DISC format, making it the ideal solution for reliable long-term backup and archiving. Compared to other recordable storage media like DVDs and Tape, M-DISC offers superior reliability and protection against data loss that will last a thousand years (or more)!
M-DISCs use a proprietary layer made from inorganic, rock-like material for permanent data storage, protected from data rot and extremes of light, humidity and temperature change. Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. 
Note: Apple's DVD Player application only works with an internal optical drive or the Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with your drive, we recommend the free VLC Player, which can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
