Toshiba will make products that work with the Blu-ray disc format. The electronics maker originally supported the rival HD DVD format that was abandoned last year.

Now Toshiba says it has applied for membership with the Blu-ray Disc Association and it's planning to make Blu-ray products like disc players and personal computers.

Rivals Sony and Panasonic already make products in the Blu-ray format.
