One of the most common inquiries I get regarding data recovery:
How easy is it to recover the files off of a MO Disk ?
Its sort of a tricky question to answer but here goes:

Whenever attempting to recall archived data there is a three pronged tactic.
 
Replicate the software environment  - make sure you have software capable of reading the files
Replicate the hardware environment - make sure that you have hardware capable of reading the disks (in this case the proper size MO Drive)
Replicate the OS – some files written in DOS or Unix for example may not be viewable in other operating systems.
 
You may only need to meet only one of the above criteria or you may need to meet all three.

If you have more questions regarding retrieving archived data on MO Disks feel free to contact me on the comments below.

LightScribe CD-r or DVD-r user? The end is nearing.

It was great while it lasted, but the end of LightScribe disc technology is very near. The writing was on the wall starting over a year ago when tower duplicator manufacturers like Microboards stopped offering units with Lightscribe drives. Now Microboards is dropping their DVD version of the LightScribe product within the next 30 days. If you have a product requirement then now is the time to purchase a bunch before they are all sold out. We’re looking into other product options, but we wanted to let you know that this technology is close to being dead.

This is the note from Microboards
“Microboards Branded LightScribe DVD/+R blank media – We’ve come to the end of our supply of DVD-R & DVD+R LightScribe media. We currently have about a 30-day supply left and will discontinue both skus once we have sold out (P/N’s LS-DVD-R-50Y & LS-DVD+R-50Y)”

From Wikipedia -
“Companies such as HP, Samsung, LaCie and LiteOn have discontinued or are phasing out LightScribe drives as of June 2013[5] with only LG still manufacturing drives.
As of the beginning of January 2014, LightScribe.com HP’s official LightScribe website has been removed. This has been replaced with the following message:
“Thank you for your interest in the LightScribe disc labeling technology. This website is no longer active. LightScribe software and disc utilities may be found on a number of public websites.”

Big Changes at Rimage / Qumu

Qumu, formally known as Rimage, sold off all of its disc publishing assets to Minneapolis based Equus Holdings for and all cash deal of $23 million. This transaction is subject to certain closing conditions like shareholder approval and buyer financing.

Should be an interesting transition.

We will keep you posted on how this may affect support of your current Rimage printers and duplicators.

After listening to the conference call this morning it appears Qumu is relieved to divest the disc publishing business from their operations in order to focus all their efforts on their video streaming business.

We recently sat in on a seminar regarding this new technology.  It is exciting and we see great potential in both the 4K TV realm and medical imaging where huge file sizes are the norm.
