Best way to save backups?

I have read quite a few threads about backup disks degrading and being unplayable. Would I be better storing my images to hard disk and then burning them to disk if I want to use them on my standalone - or does it not make a difference?

Depending on your movie collection, you’d need one might large hard-drive to keep that up. The degrading issue is inconvenient but the disc is a backup, so if and when the backup fails, you can re-copy the original.
