    I was looking through some old software and came across an interesting disc I had never seen before. It is simply labeled Master Disc (CD-R 71PS) and has a Playstation logo on the front. On the disc itself it has the Playstation logo and a list with Title, Licensee Name, Ref. No, Rec. Date, Ver. No, and Disc Type (PS or PS2). I popped the disk into a PC to see what it had on it, and it had Knoppix installed on it...but nothing written on and the inserts are still in the case. Says That's CD-R on the side and has some cleaning tips and other text on the rear.

    Was wondering if these are rare or what they are exactly? Found some information online but not a whole bunch. Any info appreciated, I just thought it was cool, being a PS fan.

    PLAYSTATION 1 BLANK CD-R The actual CD-Rs the developers used. Blank PS1 Playstation branded CD-R, used in house by Sony and Games developers to burn early versions of playstation games for use with debugging stations.

    Actually, unlike the Dreamcast (which took a special kind of disc, remember) it's not necessary to buy a special CD-R for the Blue Playstation. Any kind will do

    I read that off that website but I just didn't know if they were rare or useful or what since they were given to developers.

    Nope, not that I know of - it was in a box of old software, old IT admin must have had it.

    I remember the black bottom discs. :)
