The big mistake you have made immediately is that M-Disc IS compatible with DVD drives. That's what makes it such a good choice, because long after it's hard to find a M-Disc burner drive, one just has to find ANY optical drive that understands DVD or Blu-Ray media (if M-Disc Blu-Ray is chosen / available.)
This is a totally different deal than Low To High disc writing as there is no dye's used. M-Disc writers etch physical pits into synthetic stone (requiring a special disc drive laser and increased power at point of writing,) preventing the concept of bit rot, since it's stone. The only thing that can happen to the substrate is the surrounding medium collapses and makes it impossible to view the stone substrate.
