Do all DVD R (inc. dvd-r dvd+r .etc) discs only last for a certain number of years like cdr discs do (due to the dye). or do dvd r discs last for ever like any proper dvd film/music disc bought from a shop?

Do they last forever ? :bigsmile:

Well obviously even originals want last forever if you crackthem with a 500 pound hammer, drive over them with a craine, fry them, spit on them and stamp on them for luck. But do dvd r discs ever stop working UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS :D.

Yes, depending on the media quality and the storage conditions
that will happen sooner or later.
