To be successful the emerging technology of optical information storage must provide the end user with both significant performance advantage and cost advantage. The forces that drive the media to low cost are to a certain extent contradictory to those parameters that result in a low cost drive. The 3M media construction is an approach that preserves the low cost potential of a plastic molded disc and yet allows low end drive operation.
