This paper describes the status of magneto-optic product development and the media scaleup activities. Examples are cited from the 3M magneto-optic disc production facility to show that M/O has emerged as the dominant erasable technology. We present data indicating a complete resolution of issues such as substrates and product lifetime that were associated with M/O technology in the past. In the end we reflect on what lies ahead for M/0 technology and the developments needed for second generation products.
