Dunno I think optical storage is slow as hell. We find them from now to 
then in the dumpster's arround here. Just last week we found a small I 
belive it was a 20 disk jukebox. A friend took it and slapped the drives 
into his big one as they where faster drives but it is still slow as 
balls. I mean we found a 240disk cd changer that is rackmountable and 
has exchangable drives. We might slap 2 36x and 2 cd-rw's in there. This 
makes more sense to me then have that big bulky thing standing
