TrueDisc Announces Software for Damage Resistant Optical Media

TrueDisc Announces Software for Damage Resistant Optical Media

by , 3:40 PM EST, March 6th, 2007

TrueDisc announced on Tuesday the availability of their TrueDisc mastering software that creates archival quality CD-Rs and DVDs. Files burned with TrueDisc can sustain disc damage as high as 90% and retain the original file, according to TrueDisc's Erich Ocean.

"TrueDisc burns standard files to CD-R, DVD-R, DVD+R, and DVD+R Double Layer in a special damage-resistant format. These files, called "master copies", can be read back off the disc by the TrueDisc software. If disc damage prevents some of the file from being read, TrueDisc automatically uses patent-pending algorithms to reconstruct the missing data. This allows TrueDisc to restore the original file even when the disc is damaged due to age or abuse," the announcement said.

The TrueDisc format supports burning up to 600MB of data to CD and up to 4.1 GB of data to DVD.

TrueDisc is available immediately and requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later. It is priced at US$89, however there is currently an introductory price of US$52.
