SAN FRANCISCO — If you owned a PC with a DVD drive several years ago, you could be owed $10.

A class-action lawsuit said Sony, NEC, Panasonic and Hitachi-LG were accused of inflating the prices of optical drives sold to PC makers.

Thanks to the class-action lawsuit, some Americans can claim $10 for every PC with DVD drive they bought between April 1, 2003 and Dec. 31, 2008.

The claim must be filed before July 1.

Although Colorado is not on the list, you might be eligible if you were a resident of another state at the time of purchase.

The states include Arizona, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and or Wisconsin.

CNET reports there’s no proof of purchase required, but the settlement administration has the right to request proof if it wants.
