    dvd are 4.7 gb.

    I reckon next programmers will begin to optimize there code again and we will only need 200 gb hdd's


    But in truth we are probably looking at blue lasers which mean 100gb on one dvd disc.

    since hdd are magnetic and the limit of data storage will soon be reached we will probably find ourselves in the situation of a dvd holding more information then your average hdd.

    yes, true. Because Blu-Ray has a much smaller wavelength than red so with a smaller wavelength less of a disc is scanned at once causing in theory more space. This is already out I believe it is just not widely spread in the public domain.

    did they ever get round to making 3mb floppy disks?

    and DVDs can be double layered or two sided, i think they can have 4 layered discs

    No, an optical drive is one that uses a laser, ie. CD/DVD drives
