[QUOTE=cd pirate;1959857]And why’s that? I got myself some MCC002 a while ago, they’d been sitting on the shelves for years at a store and they still burnt great.
Many of my old TYG01 still work and scan perfectly. This is already 4+ years. Why wouldn’t they last 10 or more years?
Good media seems to be burnable/usable no matter who old it is. Good media still has not shown degradation. Only Ritek G05 and a handful of other crappy discs have gone bad.[/QUOTE]
I see no problems for such a time with GOOD CD-R media, but DVDÂ±R is a bit more complex and problematic compared to CD-R.
Please ask me again in 5 or 6 years, then I’ll mabye be able to give you a more useful answer.
The oldest CD-R media I have is 10 1/2 years old.
The oldest DVD+RW media I have is approx. 6 years old.
