Hard disk and compact disc technology are quite a bit different from each other, so its not really surprising. By the way the largest consumer drive is 300GB, if I am not mistaken.

There are most likely larger ones out there, but in the case of storage space people just use RAID and diasy chain because its pobably cheaper at this time.

wow, this is amazing. though i doubt we will see these holographic discs become popular anytime soon. blu-ray is being backed by the most powerful corporations in the industry.
