MDisc? Does anyone use it?


One of my mentors told me about this recently for archiving, backing up, etc. Just wondering if anyone started to use it at all yet?

I'd recommend 25GB BD-R's for archiving rather than m-disc. They use inorganic composites which should be stable for decades, and can be had for less than $1 per disc. Same quality as mdisc but much cheaper.

I thought Minidisc was making a comeback.
