I was wondering how long will a burned DVD last for a good quality one such as Sony or Verbatim DVD-R or DVD+R. And why does it seem to die out. I seen many sources saying 1-5 years, others saying over 30 years. Anyone can tell me?
I am sure you will get answers along the same lines you have already stated here how can anyone know for sure until they have some burned for that many years.
The oldest ones I made are from early 2003 (some with cheap media) and almost all play fine.
