Blu-Ray burners and disk capacity

    I have been reading a little bit about Blu-Ray disks.

    Are there any Blu-Ray disk burners available now on the market?

    What is the maximum capacity that a Blu-Ray disk currently on the market
    can store?

    I am taking a lot of pictures (and hopefully soon some Video content as
    well). I would like to burn them to disk, so I am exploring the Blu-Ray
    disk options.

    Thank you in advance for any information and advice.

    You could start with a Wikipedia article. Then
    try examining a few Newegg entries.


    You can find review of drives on sites like cdfreaks and

    "25GB single layer, 50GB dual layer".

    One thing you have to ask yourself, is how reliable the
    technology is. Would burning only one copy be enough ?
    Would leaving a second copy on a hard drive, be
    enough insurance ? That is a lot of data on one piece
    of media.

    Check any online store that sells computer hardware and you'll find
    Blu-ray burners and recordable media. A quick Google search will get you
    all the answers to your questions on Blu-ray.
