Why did Maxell cease a media production in Japan? :sad:

Are Maxell planning worldwide (or even just European) distribution of it’s 12x DVD-RAM, or is it going to stay available only in Asia?

What is Maxell going to do with all those manufactured HD DVD-R/RW media, which are practically unsellable now?

What will happen to 12x DVD-RAM now that Maxell has stopped production??

Maybe they will be manufactured by Optodisc (like some 1-3x media in the past) :confused:

What is maxell’s future plans for the optical media cd-r(w)/dvd-/+r(w)/dvd-ram/bd-r(e)?

Can you indicate what the maximum possible storage capacity will be in the near future? Lets say 3 years?
