This sh*t won't work. I'll tell JVC to look at this page. This new technology called Fluorescent Multi-layer DiscThis will rule! It uses the same phsycal (cd) format. Last time I checked it could hold over 200 Mb of data in about 20 layers. The drive part is a regular cd-rom with a $5.00 add-on.
C3D recently unveiled a new CD-ROM format capable of storing 140Gb -- or more than 7 times the capacity of the average DVD -- on a single disc. The new Fluorescent Multi-layer Disc (FMD-ROM), which allows multiple tracks on the disc to be accessed practically simultaneously, has a release date slated for later this year (2000). With the new format a person could, as the author of this article notes, store "20 hours of HDTV (MPEG-2 compressed) video, a small library or the contents of your entire CD collection, uncompressed, on a single 120mm disc!"
Well, the page is http://www.c-3d.net/tech_frameset.html
Increased Disc Capacity
DVD data density (4.7 GB) on each layer of data carriers up to 100 layers. Initially, the FMD disc will hold anywhere from 25- 140 GB of data depending on market need. Eventually a terabyte of data on a single disc will be achievable.
So, i'll call it the DVDead.
