DVD rw auto loader, not duplicator - 1/3/2007 5:59:36 PM

I've been googling for some time now and can't seem to find an (affordable) solution to my problem. Basically I have a lot of data at home to back up, my medium of choice is dvd r. However because there is so much data to back up (300gb + for my initial backup), it spans several discs. This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have to babysit and throw a new disc in every couple of minutes...which also means I can't let it run while I'm asleep or at work because nothing will get done.

So I've been looking for a robotic auto loader for my dvd burner. I've found all sorts of dvd duplicators (not what I need) and optical archive systems (waaaaaay out of price range). But I can't seem to find any sort of simple peripheral that will load and unload optical media.

Does anyone have a clue if such a product exists?

With the price of hard disc dropping, I would create my backups on HDD via an external drive, either network attached storage, eSATA, or IEEE1394a (Firewire).  If you have tons of data, You might consider SCSI RAID1(mirroring to have extra hard drives in the event of one failing).  It would be pricey, but probably way less than optical loaders.
