Hello my fellow Vegas Users,

A client I am working with swears she got a DVD that was a size of a business card (the Carddisc) size. I am assuming that she got one of those mini CD-Rs that are the size of a business card...but im not sure. Does anyone know if they make business card sized DVD-Rs??



PS(i prefer to post in here since you guys answer many of my other questions; I also posted in DMN-vegas)

If you go to replication you can get lots of different sizes and shapes. Some of the replication houses are getting pretty competitive, so much so that as soon as you start talking quantities of 500 or better, it's just not worth doing the DVD-R.

I did ask a guy from Ritek about this while I was atWEVA, and he said the demand just wasn't there (my guess: probably because replication is so cheap).

I haven't seen business card DVD's for sale in retail stores, but I did see the mini DVD+R's (gamecube size disks). However, my Sony burner said that it doesn't reccomend burning to them, which makes me wonder if that'ss because a) sony hasn't made them yet or b) they can fly around and break te DVD burner.

I was amazed last week to learn that a client's Jeep has a slot-loading CD player that took a miniCD I made for her with no problems. I would have assumed that miniature CDs would choke a slot loader.

thanks for the replies everyone!

passing on making these ourselves via dvd-r and going with replication sounds like a better idea. We'll see how many she wants.
