A PVD Disc (Personal Video Disc) is a special format of discs created by Hasbro Inc. to be used only in their VideoNow product lines. The disc is 108 mm in diameter and reports to hold up to 450 megabytes of data. In 2005, Hasbro introduced an electronic device called the VideoNow Media Wizard that would allow users to burn their own PVDs. The VideoNow Media Wizard seems to be no longer available from Hasbro.
