http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-RAM[/QUOTE]From the very page you link to:
[I]“Long life â€” without physical damage, data is retained for an [B]estimated[/B] 30 years minimum.”[/I]
[B]Estimated[/B], that’s the key word. No hard statistical data showing that DVD-RAM would “last longer” than DVD-R, that I know of. As I said, theory and hearsay, not actual data.
Besides, the expected lifespan of DVDR is at least the same as this number… of course excluding known fast degrading stuff like Ritek G04/G05 and some other unstable media.
Whatever, a DVD-RAM is just as prone to an accident than a DVDR, so two DVDRs are better than one DVDRAM.
But we’re far off-topic…
