There has been a recent settlement:

CBC: Sony, Pioneer, Toshiba among optical disc drive makers settling $29.7M Canadian class action

The CBC story refers to this web site: https://oddclassaction.com

November 14, 2022 is the deadline to submit a claim. $20 claim requires no proof of purchase between 2004 to 2010.

I filed as well.

Checked my records found that I bought a computer that had a CD drive during that time.

Wow, they deduct $2.00 to issue a cheque now! Geez...

I probably purchased more than one computer and hard drive during this period, but for simplicity, I'll go with the undocumented claim.

Cheers,
Doug

The computer has to have an optical drive. Like a CD, DVD, or Blu-ray drive.

Hard drives don't count towards eligibility for this optical drive class action settlement.

Oh, oops, I thought optical drives meant hard drives in this case. Fair enough. Fortunately, I have purchased a desktop computer and maybe a laptop computer during that period which had an optical CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

Nonetheless, it is an undocumented claim, and it is highly unlikely the Claims Administrator would request additional information on an undocumented claim. I've never been contacted in past claims, nor have I encountered anyone who has.

Cheers,
Doug
