    Saw this on the BBC website and would have posted it in the News section, but I don't have the power to do so.

    How to fit 300 DVDs on one disc

    The different colours and polarisations of light access different images
    A new optical recording method could pave the way for data discs with 300 times the storage capacity of standard DVDs, Nature journal reports.

    The researchers say this could see a whopping 1.6 terabytes of information fit on a DVD-sized disc.

    They describe their method as "five-dimensional" optical recording and say it could be commercialised.

    The technique employs nanometre-scale particles of gold as a recording medium.

    I just read that too. Its amazing the advances that are being made with optical media. I don't mean to sound like a spoil sport however IMO the downside to something like this is, if you scratch a disk, you could "Do in" 600GB with one scratch! For this reason I hope they encase it in some kind of cartridge thingy. Just my thoughts, bored in work :rolleyes:

    bluray did quite well with their disc's physical protection
    if somebody has come up with fitting 1.5tb on a disc, i'm sure they will come up with a decent form of protection :P
