DataPlay

A removable micro-optical disc from DataPlay, Inc., Longmont, CO, that was designed for PDAs and digital music players. Available in 250MB and 500MB capacities with a 32mm platter about 1/4" more in diameter than a quarter, the disks were used for music and computer data. DataPlay's technology enabled paid material to be prerecorded and activated over the Web, but the discs never caught on.
