So it seemed simple buy a good DVD writer, high quality recommended media and everything should be fine, but now Iâ€™m not so sure. Even if I bought the DVDâ€™s everyone says I should use with my Writer (i don’t have 1 BTW) it seems I should still expect coasters and lots of them according to some reviews Iâ€™ve read.
If thatâ€™s not worrying enough I recently read that even if I successfully burn and verify a DVD then try to read it 10 mins later it may not work?
The most worrying thing is the degradation of DVD-Râ€™s the idea that if I burn a DVD today it may not be readable in 6 months is terrifying.
Is any of this true and if I have things I want to store permanently (I.e. holiday and wedding Videos) can I burn them to DVD with any sort of guarantee that if I store them carefully in 5 years time theyâ€™ll be fine?
