Disc4You had a very interesting stand in Cebit
2001. They presented their latest 120minutes media among with the already known
99min CDs. Also they had various shaped CDs among with CD Duplicators/CD Printers.
The 120min CDs are currently supported from 4 manufacturers.
Which one? Nice question. We don't know yet. For sure it's not Mitsumi or Plextor.
The big problem with 120minute CDs is that in order to get the extra space from
99 to 120min the spindle has become much closer and thinner than with normal
CDs. In order the recorder write them it has to change the laser beam length..
The idea behind the 120min CDs is nice since they offer the exact same capacity
with Sony's DDCD technology but of course are out of any CD standard... The
compatibility is good according to Disc4You - at least for the stand alone CD
