Hardware News   Hardware News : 1,000 gigabyte DVD
   posted by DaveyD on 28-Sep-2004 11:42:01 (3579 reads)
Future DVDs could hold 100 times more information than current discs.

Imperial College London researchers in the UK are developing a new way of storing data that could lead to discs capable of holding 1,000 gigabytes.

Things are looking brighter and brighter -- with that capacity the world changes quite a bit.

"Current discs carry one bit of data per pit. But the researchers say that by using angled ridges in the pits, they can alter the way light behaves."

BRRR!!! i'm just thinking about reliability

That's going to take a while to burn a disk at our current speeds.

And I would not like to download an ISO via dial-up

Welcome to Quantum Computing! Getting more storage by fiddling with the way the photons of the laser behave.

I was rather shocked to find, apon reading the technical specs of my 120 GB and 250 GB harddrives, that the read/write head more of less guesses at what is on the platter.

Maybe add more for malfunctions and then we'll have music all day.

The problem with dvd:s and cd:s storage capacity, really, is not how much, as how long. Since the guaranteed lifespan of a cd-r is about five to seven years.

IBM have an other mass storage device, to be released in the near future.
It uses the hologram method.
When fully functional, it will have the capacity of 1TB per cubic cm.
It will be ready "in a year or two". I read it like

@Ralf

It has even been stated that the current age will in the future be known as
the 'era where no data/information was recorded' or the 'history less time' since no data etc. will survive into the future... CD/DVD's isn't something you use if you wan't to store data/information for a long time (here we are talking about 100's of years and restoreing data onto new media's soon becomes a very bad and expensive solution (and is bound to miss something, like for instance the vietnam war has all of a sudden never occured),

add to this that CD's will probably not be able to be read through any hardware (or software) in a surprisinly short amount of years, (are you laughing yet?) then try to use a Datasette (or a spectrum tape drive's) tape on your WinBlows machine (or even a 5 disk), the only thing these new formats are doing is making sure that a enourmous amount of data/information WILL be lost (just take aminet and geekgadgets as an example) or the A1's ability/inability to read amiga floppy's.

this is like stoopid , who needs 1Terrabyte?=== sure i would use it if i could but burning the cd/dvd would take longer than it will live

1x media..ok..lets say for fun that will be 13mb per sec ...

or maybe its 130mb or 1.3gb or 13Gb? or just grrrr

@Toaks

Windows users need it to backup their operating system

Beat me to it...I was going to say, with this kind of storage, MS only needs 2 or 3 discs to ship their next OS. :)

You may be surprised

My video file server has about 1/2 terrabyte of storage space, and it's getting full. When you are working with uncompressed DV video files, you can never have too much space !

The AmiGBG project took something like 300 Gb of hard drive space during production, and thats just one project, it does not take many of these to use up 1000 Gb, I'm a 3rd of the way already

@Toaks
Remember; 512kb should be enough for everyone?

@Thread

As allready mentioned, there is some problems: future compability, lifespan of the media etc.

Not to mention the fact that a simple scratch can make the whole disc unusable...
imagine loosing 1Tb of data....

thomazkid: YIKES!

this just explains how idiotic the whole idea/concept of CD medium really is.

/me thinks about the caddy system on the cdtv and old cdroms.....

Take a look here. I can't image it will be that difficult to read data stored on CDs/DVDs in the future.

On the contary, I think the problem will be too much information rather than too little.
