(EN) HIGH-DENSITY RECORDING MEDIUM AND RECORDING AND/OR REPRODUCING DEVICE THEREFOR
(FR) SUPPORT D'ENREGISTREMENT A HAUTE DENSITE ET DISPOSITIF D'ENREGISTREMENT ET/OU DE REPRODUCTION CORRESPONDANT
Abstract
(EN) Disclosed herein are a high-density recording medium, such as a high-density optical disc and a recording and/or reproducing device therefor. At a transition area of the high-density optical disc allocated between a clamping area and an information area of the high-density optical disc is formed a step having a prescribed slope so that the high-density optical disc does not collide with an objective lens of an optical pickup provided in an optical disc device although the objective lens of the optical pickup is upwardly moved toward a recording layer of the high-density optical disc until it moves to the maximum working distance when the high-density optical disc, such as a Blu-ray disc, is improperly placed on a turntable provided in the optical disc device, e.g., when the high-density optical disc is placed upside down on the turntable. The thickness of the information area is smaller than that of the clamping area by the provision of the step at the transition area. Consequently, damage to the high-density optical disc or the objective lens due to a collision of the objective lens with the high-density optical disc is prevented, and fatal errors of a servo operation are effectively prevented. Furthermore, the cost of materials required to manufacture the high-density optical disc is reduced while stable clamping force is maintained, and safe insertion of the high-density optical disc into a slot-type optical disc drive is possible.
(FR) L'invention concerne un support d'enregistrement à haute densité, notamment un disque optique à haute densité et un dispositif d'enregistrement et/ou de reproduction correspondant. Au niveau d'une zone de transition du disque optique à haute densité située entre une zone de calage et une zone d'informations du disque optique à haute densité est formée une étape possédant une pente réglementaire de sorte que le disque optique à haute densité ne se heurte pas à l'objectif d'une prise optique d'un dispositif de disque optique bien que l'objectif de la prise optique soit déplacé vers le haut en direction d'une couche d'enregistrement du disque optique à haute densité jusqu'à ce qu'il se déplace vers un espace de travail maximum lorsque le disque optique à haute densité, tel qu'un disque Blu-Ray, est placé de façon inappropriée sur un plateau tourne-disque contenu dans le dispositif de disque optique, notamment, lorsque le disque optique à haute densité est placé à l'envers. L'épaisseur de la zone d'informations est inférieure à celle de la zone de calage en raison de la présence de l'étape au niveau de la zone de transition. Par conséquent, les dommages sur le disque optique à haute densité ou sur l'objectif entraînés par la collision de l'objectif avec le disque sont empêchés, de même que les erreurs fatales d'une servocommande. En outre, le coût des matériaux nécessaires à la fabrication du disque optique à haute densité est réduit tant qu'une force de calage stable est maintenue, et tant que l'insertion sécurisée du disque optique à haute densité dans un lecteur de disque optique de type à fente est possible.
