    ============================
    TDK cracks 200GB Blu-ray discs
    http://news.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/sto...9282192,00.htm

    Previously, TDK's Blu-ray discs had a capacity of 25GB per layer, but it has now managed to raise this to 33GB. The 200GB disc is single-sided, with six layers.

    ============================

    ..........
    TDK this week confirmed its plan to develop a Blu-ray Disc with a storage capacity of 200GB. If successful, the company's R&D effort will yield a disc with four times the capacity of today's biggest BDs and double the size of protoype next-generation BD-Rs TDK has already demo'd.

    TDK showed off a 100GB BD prototype in May 2005. The 100GB disc contains four data-storage layers, is recordable and supports a write speed of up to 216Mbps, double that of 50GB BD-Rs.

    just reminder about 200GB disks, and yes it is also pointless as 90GB HD-DVD disks, because they will not be used for movies....... as well as 45GB disk, they are not in the specs.........

    I don't think 90GB discs will be used for movies for HD DVD however I seem to recall hearing that the HD DVD org was considering adding TL45GB discs to the HD DVD spec and hope to have that approved around April 2007 in time for the G3 Toshiba players. Also to be approved would be the three layer hybrid discs which have one layer of std DVD and two of HD DVD.

    They could always use it for television shows, if they were smart.

    the problem is (mainly) if such disks will be able to read older players....
    I think those 45,90GB for HD-DVD or 200GB for Blu-ray, are mainly for STORAGE not for movies......

    but if firmaware updates can arange READING of such disk, I AM IN for all of them [​IMG]
