    I have a client who wants me to obtain the data burned on a stock G4-dual 500 DVD-RAM drive (circa 1999). It is a double sided type1 5.2 GB.

    I'm looking at currently at current DVD-RAM drives like this:

    But (of course) I want to make sure they will read the older discs (after I bust them out of the protective case!).

    Does anyone have any experience or advice?

    Typically newer drives should read stuff burned on older drives with no issues. I don't have any experience with DVD-RAM, but that's generally the case.
