Best archival dvd

hi what would be the best archival dvd to use for storing photos?
would using blue ray be an option?
thanks

For a start, if it’s precious stuff I’d have two sets of archives, not one. On discs by different manufacturers. :wink:

I generally use Verbatim DVD+R (the +R as opposed to -R is just personal preference) for one set, and I store the second set on discs manufactured by Taiyo Yuden (available online, and in B&M stores under various brands - look for “Made in Japan” on packaging).

Everyone has a favourite media though, so you may get differing opinions on this question. :wink:

As I know nothing about quality blu-ray media, I’ll leave that bit for someone more knowledgeable on it, hehe.

hi thanks, i have them backed up on 3 external drives but just to make sure i will put them on dvd! i have a blue ray drive in my new pc (medion) so i just wondered if i should go that route as it will be the storage of the future?
thanks
