UDO & UDO2 Disks Conversions

UDO and UDO2 optical disc storage media cartridges have 30GB and 60GB capacities and are branded Plasmon, HP, Verbatim, IBM, Xerox, Maxoptix, Alliance Storage Technologies (ASTI), Mitsubishi Sony. UDO disks can be Rewritable or WORM Write Once media. There was a plan in early stages to develop a 120GB disk, however we have not yet come across such media, and it is likely that the fall in price of hard disk drives has made this obsolete. The optical discs are and used in computer archival backup systems such as COLD storage, whereby the bulk of document storage is transferred to Optical disks for long term archiving, so freeing up hard disk drive storage for more recent work.Sector Size is 8kb 8000 bytes per sector, and Cartridge Size 5.25 inch.
