      DVR-A04, A05, and A06 is made by Pioneer. It is the oem drive in the G4 Macintosh. It is the drive that was dubbed the superdrive.

      All three (A04, A05, A06) will write to DVD-R/RW CD-R/RW and read all of the formats. The A06 kicks it up a notch by adding the capability to write to DVD+R and CD+R disk.

      The DVR-A04, A05, & A06 are the retail versions. The DVR-104, 105, & 106 are the oem versions. Same exact drives.

      The read write speeds increased in the different models.

      You can find the specs buy going to and doing a search for DVR-A04 spec, DVR-A05 spec, and DVR-A06 spec.

      I have two of the A06 drives in my pc and have upgraded my G4 Mac to a A05.

      Hope this helps.

      Good Luck Lee
