Re: Kodak 24k gold preservation dvd

That's just MAM-(A/E(? Should I still put the E there now the frenche plant has closed ?)) gold media.
The results so far suggest it's not word the cash.

Other compannies which use gold are.
MPO
Verbatim (Archival Grade in america) -Which uses silver for the reflectivity but then the silver is sealed with gold. - To get the best of both worlds.

Did the French plant close? Where are they getting the media from now? Is it all MAM-A? What about Computer Support Italy, I heard they went bankrupt.

Computer support italy wen bankrupt.

Then both MAM's were bought up by Hayet Business Inc.
Then MAM-E went bankrupt

See
http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=22360
or you can search up some more stuff if you can read french !

So that's why I asked should I still list MAM-E. They did fix some of the stuff of there site. (The crazy store with no media is no longer there !) but I wonder if that info is up to date with the current situation.

Re: Kodak 24k gold preservation dvd

The MAM-A USA site still seems to be running. In fact it looks like it was updated recently (they talk about seeing them at some show in November). It also still says they are a part of computer support italy still, so it must not be too reliable...

Re: Kodak 24k gold preservation dvd

Emtec is made by MPO. THe DVD+R media so far worked ok. But still the question will be how will it age.

I just made comments on this exact topic here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=195330
And 24k gold is good for jewelry, not necessarily DVDs.
