Hello,

Add this URL, to your list:

Then, click on <http://dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html#2.13&gt;, for your
answer.

Here's a partial quote, from the above section:

"2.13] What effect will FMD have on DVD?

Very little, as predicted from the beginning in this FAQ. Constellation
3D ran out of money in mid 2002. The various reports of fluorescent
multilayer disc (FMD) causing the early death of DVD were wildly
exaggerated and not founded in reality."


Cordially,
