Memorex ships first recordable HD DVD discs

updated 09:10 am EDT, Tue August 15, 2006

Memorex Recordable HD DVD

A distinct advantage Blu-Ray initially claimed over HD DVD was the ability to write to disc: the initial specifications of the former included recording as a standard feature for computer-based drives. HD DVD was initially read-only; however, with the imminent release of HD DVD-R drives the competition will soon become fierce. Memorex is the first manufacturer to provide recordable media for those new drives. The company today announced that it has begun shipping the first HD DVD-R discs to stores. These write-once discs are single-layer media that can hold up to 15GB of data each. Memorex also said it would have HD DVD-RW discs ready for the fourth quarter. At $20 per disc, HD DVD-R is considerably more expensive than regular DVD but slightly less expensive than recordable Blu-Ray media.
