I have a wierd problem. Had few hundred Fuji CD-R stored in their own jewel cases. After few years they have turned brown on the outer edge of disc. Ok, backupped them to Verbatim Azos. Datalifeplus and Shiny Silver Azos.
Now, after about a year, those Azos stored in the same Fuji cases are again turning same kind of brown at the same outer edge. Same discs burned at the same time and stored in different cases are looking perfectly fine.
When scanning them with CD/DVD-Speed they are seem to be ok, those brownish ones too.
My question here is, why is this happening? Only those with Fuji cases are changing their colour, but scanning gives perfect results, similar to non-coloured ones stored in other cases.
I suppose this has nothing to do with degradation. Some brownish CD are burned just a few months ago.
Have someone ever experienced the same?
And do I have to worry about those brownish CD’s if scanning gives perfect results? Shouldn’t degradation show in scans?
As I think this is somehow just cosmetic and somehow those Fuji cases are to blame here.
Or… worst case scenario… I don’t want to burn all of those again as I have just finished the job backupping those brown Fujis.:a
