video business cards

Has anyone here done any video business cards? If so do you use CD's or DVD'.s. Any tips on how to do them. I have a friend with a small business that wants me to take some video for video biz cards. I have some demos coming but thought I might get some good infor here.

Well, they little discs aren't 100% reliable. It can be a way to lose a good customer when your card gets stuck in his optical drive. I've seen it happen too often to even consider it. I produced a series of these for a real estate client. Too many problems, so he dropped the project.

my experiences with these are the opposite, however i dont use the "card shape" discs.. so i may be on a tangent.
i use tdk mini cdrs with the hard case cover, with a custom dual sided printout for the front and inside, the disc itself is round and fits about 185mb and sits on the inner circle of the disc tray
