    Howdy Pardners! How long you reckon until we see affordable Blu-Ra
    players and burners for our desktops?

    Blu-Ray 33.5GB Digital Storage for HDVD

    From http://www.physorg.com/news2510.html

    The new Blu-ray/ DVD combo ROM disc has a one-side readout, tripl
    layer structure comprised of an outside Blu-ray disc (BD) layer an
    inner DVD dual layer. The outer BD layer is capable of storing hig
    definition video signals up to a capacity of 25GB. The inner DVD dua
    layer can store up to 8.5GB of standard definition video signals
    During Blu-ray reproduction, blue laser read the outer BD layer, whil
    red laser read the inner DVD dual layer during DVD reproduction. Th
    triple layer structure was made possible by the development of
    high-performance reflective film that reflects blue laser used fo
    Blu-ray reproduction, but is transparent to red laser used in DV
    reproduction. The proprietary technology builds upon JVC's pas
    developments in the field of disc processing technology.

    The inner DVD layer of the Blu-ray/ DVD combo ROM disc has an 8.5G
    dual layer structure, the current mainstream structure for commerciall
    available DVD software releases. The new disc is capable of storing al
    of the data currently contained in commercially available DV
    software.

    Affordable hardware is not the problem.

    I bought a dual layer NEC DVD writer for $79 6 months ago.
    The problem is the media. In all this time the media is still expensive ($13
    each) and hard to find.
