Blu-ray Drive 128GB!
The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) has named the oversized disc DBXL, and intends to provide two versions of this, a triple-layer 100GB and a quad, size 128GB. In this phase, the use of these discs is mainly for file storage and not film.
As now, the Blu-ray discs have either one or two layers, while the capacity of them are 25GB and 50GB respectively. And although the BDA has perfected the requirements for BDXL, the actual discs will not be marketed directly.
Also, while these older Blu-ray discs offer immense storage space, there are few Blu-ray drives that could read discs more than two layers. This means that users will have to wait long enough to see such a player.
