Millenniata M-Disc Never Loses Data
Millenniata today announced the M-Disc, a new optical storage solution that promises to keep written data fresh and free of losses for up to 1,000 years.
M-Disc looks and feels like any other DVD or CD that are currently in the market but are transparent and have an oddly pungent odor.
According to engadget the Milleniata’s M-Disc works by using a “synthetic, rock-like” layer where your data is “etched” into, and not just burned onto like other writable discs.
Hitachi-LG Data Storage has partnered with Millenniata and will manufacture M-Ready DVD drives that are capable of reading M-Discs.

M-Ready drives and M-Disc media is expected to start selling in October and one M-Disc with a 4.7GB capacity will sell for $3 ($14 for the 5-pack, $27 for the 10-pack).
Millenniata is also working on a Blu-ray version of M-DISC that will be announced at a later date.
