DataPlay made a splash two years ago when it unveiled quarter-size discs that store 500 megabytes. Now, the first compatible devices will hit the market this summer. iRiver's iDP-100 ($369, shown) will be the first digital audio player, while Kinpo Electronics has shown a 3.1-megapixel digital camera. Discs cost $11 each.
