I do understand that CD-R disc will disappear in near future. But, I believe I still need some CD-R for software program (backups) or ISO. For example, if I need to backup a software program that had multiple discs, do I still need to use CD-Rs, instead of DVDs, right? I don’t find a way to put muti-disc program in one dvd, especially when disc1 had autorun feature. Please advise me if I am not correct.
If I still need CD-Rs, which brand CD-R do I need to buy?
I have three DVD burners (All NEC burners). I don’t know which one I need to buy for better compatibility.
I heard Taiyo Yuden is the best. But, when I put (about 3-4 year old 16-24x) TY Cd-Rs into NEC drive, I got some errors when burning. But, about two year old Imation 32X CDs were burned fine. I don’t know if this is a common problem (when I put really old blank cds into a newer drive), or not. Do I really need to use newer (high speed capable) CDs for better compatibility? Which brand (manufacturer) CD-R would be better for NEC burners?
