I have some questions that I hope I can get answered here (hope this is the right forum).
Is there any problem with storing DVDs in colored jewel cases for the long-term? (In other words: I have some Fujifilm Slimline colored jewel cases (red, yellow, blue, etc.) where the disk will be stored for a long time and I’m wondering if there is any kind of chemical used in coloring these cases that will come off onto my DVD disks and ruin them.) I can’t find the clear non-colored cases any more at my local stores.
Is there really any difference in keeping shows that were recorded on DVD-RW (rewritable) disks as opposed to keeping them on DVD-R or DVD+R disks? Is the quality of the video/audio noticeably better on DVD-R and DVD+R disks than the rewritable disks? Do the rewritable disks erode data more over time? (I’ve noticed that on the backs of these disk boxes, it says that DVD-Rs are better for long-term data storage but it doesn’t say why.)
Thanks in advance for your help.
