Plasmon ships DVD-RAM media
Plasmon IDE announced it is shipping pre-formatted "certified" DVD-RAM media to its DVD-RAM library customers and other DVD-RAM media users. By formatting the media ahead of time, Plasmon officials say the process ensures data saved to DVD-RAM drives will be retrieved reliably. To prevent damage caused by mishandling, the media can be shipped loaded in 10-slot magazines for an additional $40 per magazine. List pricing is $449 for 10 formatted DVD-RAM discs.
