Conventional 12 cm disc (left) compared to 8 cm disc (right)

MiniDVD (also Mini DVD or miniDVD) is a DVD disc which is 8 centimetres (3.15 in) in diameter. Most MiniDVDs hold 1.4 GB of data, but there are variants that hold up to 5.2 GB. The MiniDVD is also known as a "3 inch DVD", referring to its approximate diameter in inches.

The 8 cm optical disc format was originally used for music CD singles, hence the commonly used names CD single and miniCD. Similarly, the manufactured 8 cm DVDs were originally used for music videos and as such became known as DVD single.

MiniDVD capacities

Recordable 8 cm discs are commonly used in DVD-based camcorders. The most common MiniDVDs hold 1.4 GB of data, but there are variants that can offer up to 5.2 GB of storage space, through a combination of dual layers and sides. Mini DVDs are also available in +R, +R DS, +R DL, +R DL DS, +RW, +RW DS, -R, -R DS, -R DL, -R DL DS, -RW, and -RW DS variants, just like their full sized counterparts. (DL=Double Layer, DS=Double Sided)

Physical size Single layer capacity Dual/Double layer capacity
12 cm, single sided[1] 4.7 GB 8.5 GB
12 cm, double sided[1] 9.4 GB 17.0 GB
8 cm, single sided[2] 1.46 GB 2.66 GB
8 cm, double sided[2] 2.92 GB 5.32 GB

Variants of MiniDVD

Nintendo used a very similar disc-based format for the GameCube. This format is also supported by the Wii for backward compatibility with the GameCube, however unofficial homebrew is required to use this feature on later Wii models.
