General discussion about recordable CD, DVD and BD media and write quality testing.

I forwarded it on again, and got this response:

Thanks *******. I know how nice it would be to have a 12 X DVD-RAM in North America but I do not believe it is going to happen for some time if at all. As you know I have made repeated requests and always the same answer, no plans for it to be released here.

Sorry ******* but as always I appreciate you sending along the request and attached link. Thank you.

Scott

{If Imation also sell 12x DVD-RAM (as implied by the pics)}

Well, that's me!!

This pic:

It definitely shows an Imation 12x DVD-RAM in a cartridge. :)
But it could be that this is only released in Asia.

thanks evilboy! i knew i would be embarrassed because of my question, but what the heck... maybe i have to buy a bigger monitor...
unfortunately imation lists dvd-ram media to the "retired" section to quote myself:

Someone posted this in another thread, but I figured it might be missed since the topic was about unprotecting a DVD-RAM disc.

Apparently you can buy 12x DVD-RAM discs from Audiocube at $12 a pop. Ouch! Hefty price tag, but it's there if you REALLY want some...

I also noticed that AudioCubes is running a bunch of interesting promotions, which could get you $5 off coupons to use if you're really determined.
Their promos are explained here:

I sent an email to Memorex earlier this week, asking if they were going to offer 12x DVD-RAM media now that their latest drives support it. I haven't heard back yet.
