Default Pioneer A03 media-lockout petition

sponsored links

If you have a Pioneer A03, you may have noticed that unless you purchase media branded either Pioneer or on a list of Pioneer licensed and/or tested media, your drive will completely prohibit you from writing at 2x, even if the media is perfectly capable of doing so. Even if it isnt and the disk ends up in the rubbish, you still have the right to write it at 2x. Why do you have to pay more for Pioneer listed media? You shouldnt have to, its a obvious breach of anti-competition laws. Please sign the petition linked below. If Pioneer ignore it and dont back down and change the drive so that it performs the way its advertised (oh yeah, Pioneer advertise it as x2 and nowhere in the marketing does it state only with Pioneer listed media) then the list may be used in starting a class action suit against Pioneer.


Thanks all!

If you have your say, then large companies may stop ripping you off!!!
