Just when you thought that new dual-layer DVD burner would last you a while, Toshiba and Clariant decide to dig in and create a 30 GB HD-DVD disc. HD-DVD itself is still in the prototype stages, as is rival format Blu-ray, so who knows whether we’ll actually see production models. It does, however, appear that we’re going to see a continuation of the compatibility problems we’ve had with DVD recording formats. It’s probably best to wait to see which format emerges triumphant before making any next-generation optical drive purchases.
