hard drives are nice , but my best price per GB for reliable hard drives is
Seagate IDE 200GB at 132$CAD or 0.66$ per gb
but even if I take the most expensive ridata at 24$ per 50dvd that's 235GB for 24$ or 0.1$ per gb
for the price of 2,4TB or harddrive space , I could get 15,5TB of DVD storage
I'm going to run nero cdspeed's scandisk on each dvd (or something similar that can be automated if it exist) so I can eliminate bad dvds right after burning them , as long as I don't have a few bad dvd per spindle it'll be a very good deal
can dvds go bad later while in storage or if I check them right after burning them and then store them in a dark and dry place and take care not to damage or scratch them , they won't go bad just out of aging , right ?
