Blank DVD +R for archival purposes

[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 DVD±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. :wink:

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.

[QUOTE=wallace0134;1959885]They’re not as robust as the Sony branded stuff, so I’d not recommend those for stuff that has to last a while. :wink: [That media is made by Lead Data for Sony, but is the stuff Sony rejects, IIRC.][/QUOTE]

Thanks Wallace for the insight. I will pass these on as throw aways! :bigsmile:
