However the small pile of cash (less than a suitcase but more than an envelope) that such things require mean that most people ask but never do this.
Figure around 25,000USD for the NRE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-recurring_engineering ) fees and about 4 times the cost of a generic USB drive in the 10K quantity range.
These are ball park figures but can help you determine if it's worth doing.
Can anyone please inform me if there is such a thing as read-only media cards, or any other option than CDs/DVDs? I know it sounds counterintuitive, but I would like to copy information onto a thumbdrive or mediacard for distributing but don't want the video easily duplicated. When I burned the video onto a cd, the playback was slow at responding to "forward" and "back" controls, but the thumbdrive was nearly instantaneous. (I do realize that CDs are easily copied.)
Thanks for any help!
