Has Blu-ray met its match

HD-DVD that can hold 51gb

"It's all go in the HD DVD camp at the moment. Still on a high from the Paramount/Dreamworks deal, we're now hearing that HD DVD will soon have a 51GB, triple-layer disc on the way. The significance of a 51GB capacity is that it exceeds the current Blu-ray maximum by 1GB."

"The snag, of course, is that today's HD DVD players will be incapable of reading the new disc, which is something of a problem for early adopters, who will presumably have to buy new kit. Toshiba last week positioned the new disc as an "extended capacity, high-end option".




We will have to fork out more money for a player though

lool make a new disc which doesnt work with the player? anyway blu-ray made a 100gb disc and they are working on a 200gb disc as well which will be compatible with the current blu-ray players.

It does say in the first link:

The good news is that the 51GB discs should play in all HD DVD players currently on the market. We discussed this with James Armour from Toshiba's optical storage division at CeBIT this year, and were told that although the third layer would be harder to read, and generate more data errors, the player's error correction should be able to fix these problems without picture and sound problems.

So they should work apparently, but maybe not?

Reading other sources say it wont work on HDDVD players currently out.

We'll have to see
