Fostex PD-6 Media Discontinued
As anticipated, Maxell is going to stop selling the DVD-RAM in its current
form, but fear not! There is a solution. From Fostex:
Gotham has purchased a significant number of the original cartridges and will
do out utmost to support all our PD-6 users. If you anticipate needing an
unusually large number or want to lay in a supply, please give us a call so we
can accommodate you!
In an effort to make media more readily available for the PD 6, Fostex and
Hitachi Maxell Ltd. have come to an agreement. The shuttered cartridge-held 8cm
DVD-RAM disk (model DRMS-V28R.1P*) will be discontinued in its present form
beginning March 2008.
No need to panic!
The following solution for PD-6 users will be as follows. Bare 8cm DVD-RAM disks
will continue to be manufactured and supplied in the regular plastic case
package due to high demand from various market segments.
Fostex will begin supplying a dedicated caddy adapter approx. March 2008. This
adapter accommodates the bare 8cm DVD-RAM disks for PD 6 use. It offers PD-6
users the ability to purchase bare 8cm disks off-the-shelf that are more cost
effective and readily avaailable.
The discs are easily put it into the Fostex caddy to adapt to the PD-6 optical
drive. Users may re-use the shuttered cartridge adapters for multiple discs.
There is no need to purchase one per disc.
