Memorex introduces mini DVD-Rs Memorex is the first media brand to release smaller DVD-R media. The capacity is reduced to 1.4GB, which still equals to two CD-R discs.
"We believe our new line of Mini DVDs proves once again that Memorex offers the most comprehensive and affordable optical media solution available at retail today," said Brad Yeager, senior product marketing manager for digital media. "With Memorex Mini DVDs, consumers can capture life's important moments with their DV camcorders, and easily share them with family and friends."

what is the capacity of the gamecube mini's? do standalone dvd players support this media? that press release is funny: "With Memorex Mini DVDs, consumers can capture life's important moments with their DV camcorders, and easily share them with family and friends." how much easier is it to share a disc of that size? post will be the same, and so on.

Since GC discs are based on DVD technology, I suppose the capacity is the same (if the diameter of the discs is the same). The advertised capacity for GC discs is 1.5GB.

The GCN won't read them. It does not have the ability @ the moment. But, Free Loader might help. I'll have to try it.

i wonder if they'll release/rent movies on minis now?

i doubt it most dvd are dvd9 if not full dvd5 so the chances of 1.5 gig movie rentals it's slim to nil
