It is called the TeraDisk and it is really small, like a ordinary CD/DVD. But it?s really huge in terms of space. 1 TB (1000 GB). How can this be done? The process is easy (or not). All existing optical media record data on semitransparent layers. A regular CD has 1 layer and a Blu-Ray disk has up to 8. The reason nobody can add more layers on a regular CD/DVD/Blu-Ray disk is because when the light passes through these layers it becomes distorted and by the time it reaches the final layers it becomes almost impossible to read/write on the disk.

TeraDisk achieved the 1TB limit by using 200 layers, each storing 5GB of data. So basically the data support stay the same (TeraDisk will be made out of the same plexiglas like material used in other disks) but the write/read laser technology is completely new. They say it?s going to be cheap and it will be available for the public in 2010.

Looks good and sounds promising  :smile

When it works it's like chips and beer.

Page created in 0.179 seconds with 23 queries. The internet in the UK is just as bad as the weather IMO. Going back on topic, I don't think a 1TB disk is all that good because what are you gonna do when you lose the disk?
Being Australian is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, and then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

Lose the disk?
What are you going to do when the HD becomes corrupted?
(Run SpinRight 6.0 and recover it!)

A bigger issue is when the caps in the PSU or MB dry out and die....then you need to rebuild the system.

The good news is the top MB makers are now moving away from electrolytic caps and using solid capacitors....bad news is they are charging more for what every circut maker is going to start doing.

I suggest everyone gets a external HD instead.
The boyfriend of my sis, works for TV production, he is using a IPOD to store like 20gig of sound and video files. Just one small disk would be handy to carry tho.

I've got 2 500 gb externals and a 160 gb that's USB only. Very nice, fits in pocket too.

Seriously thought,  what good is a 1tb disk besides long-term storage? I guess it would be a great multi-move/TV series disc though. . .

Every divx movie you have on your computer all on one disc... getting a hardon talking about it.
Also forget multi DVD hard drive backsups.
The computer world would be a better place with these 'cheaply produced' discs.
