    Blu-Ray, the next step of DVD's

    TDK Electronics Corp. said this week that it had successfully demonstrated a 100-Gbyte Blu-Ray disc using its Durabis coating.

    Durabis, which was introduced this past January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, is a coating that resists scratching and dust, reducing errors and eliminating the need for a protective cartridge.

    The coating's effect is roughly similar to the use of error-correcting code in hard drives -- the code eliminates the errors that crop up as the drive is manufactured to finer, higher-capacity tolerances. Durabis even works to eliminate static charges that attract dust, which in turn can obscure the optical recording lens and the laser.

    The material is so precise that TDK has already been able to achieve 6x (216Mbps) recording speed in the lab with blue laser media, the company said.

    Durabis discs will be available in the U.S. this year, according to TDK.

              will be another 2-3 years at least.

              they say it will replace DVD but I doubt that. DVD and bluray will exist side by side. just like CD and DVD now.

                I love new technology, makes the older one cheaper like anything. I recently saw a box of floppies at staples. Almost gave me the reminiscent shudder.

                  hahah floppies


                  I wonder why they are still being used, and a floppy drive is still a must have in every new PC sold. I am still looking forward to those 'legacy free' PC's we were promissed a few years ago.


                  I guess, this will happen with BTX introduced now. (fingers crossed)

                    Actually when u order some Dell PC's u have to specifically order the floppy drive if you want.

                        that is what they said PS3 will be blu ray but the problem is you cant run dvds on the same drive then.

                          Forget Blu-Ray

                          I am not really existed about Blu-Ray because the speeds are extremely slow at the time. I might get it when they come with faster speeds but what i really am waiting for is Tera-byte hard drives those should be good. then i can get rid of all the other hard drives.

                              They said its backward compatible so i think it will be able to run DVDs aswell.
