Single layer dvd's is the winner, those are the only discs that will last the test of time.




Will flash drives someday replace optical discs? Would that be too expensive, and would the data not last as long?

Shopkin, try Verbatim DVD+R DL. Memorex sucks, and DVD-R DL aren't that great I think.
Im hoping for some sort of 3D flash drives, like a memory cube, that would be dope

am i not right, YOU ARE THE MINORITY as of now
DLs havnt stood the test of time as of yet, if they did they would be just as cheap and single layers.

blu-ray's dope , thats the type of shit im hoping for, not a worthless extra 4 gigs, once 100 GB disc become the standard is when ill switch, for now im not getting punked out buying shitty DLs i give it like 3-5 years till they are at where DLs are now.

and memorex do suck...im not doubting that all you burn DLs with 100% success rate but you must realize that your all minority nerds who have time/funding/knowledge base to make them work. the more i think about it, the more i realize that shit shitty format is being pushed on us with little price reduction to maximize profit.

convenient huh?


i think id rather split it or switch discs, than have all my comp resources going to burn 4 extra gigs?

this conversation really makes me want to follow mr. marcel vogel-one of my heros, i bet if he were still alive we would even be talking about this, we would be well on our way to solid state storage

If you got a bunch of DVD9's and you wanted to copy them, you will spend a lot of time splitting and/or compressing them to DVD5.

How exactly are you going to do that?
You won't spend $.75 on a disc now, how are you going to afford $3-5 per disc or the burner?
I assume you also realize you will need a new computer, since it can't burn a dual layer now, there's no chance of it burning a blu-ray.

Don't blame us or the format for your shortcomings financially, education wise, & having inferior equipment.

Yep and it will take up 1/2 the size and have twice the quality of your DVD5s.

Hell, I am in the middle of transferring 1500 CDRs that have nothing but shn and a few flacs on them to DVD (5 at first and now DVD9). And you know what, before all those CDRs of lossless files, it was cassette tapes. 1000s of them over the years. And LOTS of pople have done it. This progression has been going a lot longer than you or I been around and it will continue.

It's your choice, you can either attempt to learn something new and progress with the rest of us, or you can stay where you are and continue to be a self-admitted troll. Simple as that.

And yes I am an 'old nerd' in your book. I started my own business in 1998, sold it 8 years later and retired at 33. Now I do sit around on the computer, probably a little too much.

And I laugh at people like you.

Oh, and no wife yet, my girlfriend said she would be jealous of another woman around the house.



Have a good one lil troll!

who said i couldnt burn DLs? i just choose not to

and i said the "standard" meaning when blu-ray is the standard MAJORITY in 5 years, ill go for it, now 4 GB isnt worth the extra $.75

you dont need to agree, its fact

dvd9s isnt the majority and i dont expect it to be any time soon

what it boils down to is that were all passionate nerd with too much time on our hands, you guys just have WAY to much time on your hands, i feel bad for you, because i feel like you wasting precious time arguing with me while you should be at your kids soccer game or attending you wifes/GFs bukake sessions or maybe burning more dvd9s, somthing a lil bit more productive, you obviously all know my stance on dvd9, PEOPLE WHO USE DVD9 ARE THE MINORITY, talk to me when that changes! or get a life and dont talk to me at all! I will always troll as long as you keep giving me troll bait.

chrisj = washed up internet dork with a tiny dick that no one here has ever heard of so

edit- your cool in my book chris, that kraftwerk dvd9 is HOTT, once i split it of course!

you gunna catch any of the US shows? thats a show i would LOVE to see for sure, thanks for the UP, on that note, i dont mean the insults above nearly as much now that i saw your actually somewhat respectable musically

Why ban you? I could care less if you prefer DVD5s instead of DVD9s. Who really cares? All I really care about is that I ask that you please not split a DVD9 and then seed it.

We are all adults here (I think, although sometimes I do wonder ) , shouldn't we be able to have differing opinions?
