Since I started backing up various forms of media into cd several years ago, I have accumulated about 800 cd. I keep them in brand name cd folders (CD Project) for better protection. Yet periodically I see noticeable stratches in the back side of my cd. I can still play even my oldest ones, but I have concerns over their lifespan.
I store my cds into either 208 or 312 cd folders. Everytime I have to take my cd out of the folder, I try my best not to lift it out so that the back of my cd would rub the fabric of the folder’s pocket.
Recently I bought a skipdr cd repair kit to “fix” the stratches in some of my cd. It turned out that the back of cd looked worst after I had done the fixing procedure.
Now that I’m going to turn my cd into dvd. What would be the best way to maintain my new dvd disc? I think black jewel cases, those made with soft plastic as oppose to hard transparent plastic cover, seems to be the best. However they take up a lot of space.
