mation präsentiert auf der CeBIT (Halle 12, Stand C29) das neue optische Speichermedium DataPlay. Die Disc befindet sich ähnlich einem MO-Medium in einem Schutz-Caddy; trotzdem ist es nicht viel größer als ein 5-Mark-Stück. Aufgeteilt auf zwei Seiten passen 500 MByte auf den Speicherknirps – 250 MByte pro Seite.
