First, thanks for the feedback. It's a tremendous help.
For those who burn BluRay, what brand media do you like? I'm using an ASUS external drive and recently went through a 25pk of Verbatim BD-R 25GB 6x discs. Of the 25, 8 were unusable, the drive simply rejected them.
as i wrote, as soon as the millenniata BLU RAY´s are on the market i will buy them.
for the time being i use the normal verbatim (not LTH) .. never had a problem with them.
make sure you did not buy LTH media.. or make sure your ASUS drive supports them.QuoteU.S.-based Millenniata (www.mdisc.com) today announced it will offer Blu-ray M-DISCs in the second quarter of 2013, increasing both the storage capacity and the accessibility of the M-DISC.
The announcement, made at the Storage Visions Conference in Las Vegas, marks a major step forward in permanent data storage solutions for businesses and consumers by making the M-DISC available in all the standard optical disc formats.
The other major advance in the growing world-wide acceptance of the M-DISC DVD and the forthcoming Blu-ray M-DISC is the marketing and distribution partnership with Imation Corp. announced at the Storage Visions Conference by Millenniata. Millenniata and Imation, the leading world-wide distributor of data storage products, have agreed to co-brand and distribute both the M-DISC and Blu-ray M-DISC under Imation's TDK, Memorex and Imation brands.
RITEK Corporation, the leading manufacturer of optical storage media in the world, will produce the new Blu-ray M-DISC as part of its manufacturing agreement with Millenniata. In addition, RITEK has signed a license agreement with Millenniata to distribute and co-brand both the DVD and Blu-ray M-DISCs through its established distribution and reseller channels as a secondary distribution channel for the M-DISC products behind Imation.
The new Blu-ray M-DISCs will be writable and readable on any Blu-ray combo drive - an enormous step for Millenniata and the convenience of this permanent storage technology. The Blu-ray M-DISCs will also offer at least five times the amount of storage as the standard 4.7GB M-DISC.QuoteWhether you’re a scrapbooker, a business owner, a genealogist, a photographer, or all of the above, you can’t afford to lose your priceless memories or data. M-DISC™ is designed to last for up to 1,000 years, which means once written, your documents, data, medical records, photos, and more can be read forever.
Unlike computer hard-drives and optical discs (CDs and DVDs), M-DISC™ preserves and protects your files by engraving your information into a patented rock-like layer, resistant to light, temperature, humidity, and more. In fact, The U.S. Department of Defense put this to the test, and M-DISC™ was the only solution that passed. The M-DISC™ cannot be overwritten, erased, or corrupted by natural processes. Best of all, it’s compatible with any DVD player, which means you can access your data anywhere and anytime.
Those have a pretty terrible $ to GB ratio.... $3 for only 4.7GB.....
