I have backed up several movies on AN31 DVD-Rs that all seem to work fine. They play without any problems on my Apex AD-5131 DVD Player as well as on my computer. Are there still negatives to using this cheap media?
What I mean is - will these backups still work in a few years? The DVDs that I burned using the same media a few months ago still play fine.
What about the crappy DVD+RWs media code INFODISCA10 that I’m using for hard drive dumps (not for important backups)? Will those still work in a few years? Why would using more expensive media be better when the DVDs I’m using now appear to work fine.
