To be technical about it, they are outside of the standard. Many 
people use them. I keep some around, but the bulk of my work is done 
on 74-minute discs.

The archival gold discs are available in 74 minute

www.tape.com does NOT list them.

I wonder what this is - 80 minute "Preservation Disc" from Kodak
http://www.cddimensions.com/cd-r_media/kod-29150.asp
no other gold archive listing here.They have other gold, but all 80-minute
http://www.cddimensions.com/cd-r_media/

http://cdrdvdrmedia.com/cdr.html doesn't even list MAM-A and are 
showing 90-minute CD-Rs as "HOT"
