I must have missed the original message but I wanted to make a couple comments

This is not true, but rather something 3M tells you to get you to buy a new
gate. Our rep told us the same thing. I picked up a couple of the "donuts"
at a trade show and tried them with our 15 year-old 3M gate. Worked every
time. When I told this to my rep she admitted that they probably *would*
work with older gates but that 3M wouldn't support that. (whatever that
means). So, it's worth getting a sample and trying them with your gate.

They sold them to us, especially after the above incident. We only use the
donuts on double sided DVDs, the rest we use the overlay type.
