the shop where i bought that box of Kodaks - they had 3 10-packs in Jewel cases. roughly $12 (incl. tax) to the box
the salesman said Kodak were readily available, i've no idea what he meant.
this is the first ever i've stumbled on Kodak media in a retail store. was quite surprised! never saw them online. the only other place i've seen them before was at the sysadmins at the School of Economics in the univ where i teach. i think they just get them as freebees from suppliers etc.
so i've no idea how readily available they really are here.
i'm having a hard time trying to imagine what 10K or 20K CDs looks like. even in the biggest retail stores here, i don't think the carry such amounts.
by the way, this Kodak box i've got says on it:
Made in Ireland 08/01 P/N 6E2413
CAT 104 4882
and all the text on the box is written in English/French/German (warranty stuff in a few more langs.) so it's the European market stuff.
btw, the cheapest i've ever seen retail here was approx $30 for a 100-spindle...
