#1

After buying blanks, how long do they stay in stock till they are all used?


#2

Depends on my usage. It seems to go in spurts.


#3

Yeah me too. Can be a month, can be 4 months.


#4

Some CD-R media I have are about 6 or more years old.
But normaly I use a 50pc spindle in 2 Month.


#5

WHOA?! 6 years … i;m surprised the metallic coating hasn’t bronsed cos all of my burnt ones from that long ago are dead.


#6

Most of my several year old CD-R’s are still fine … CMC, Verbatim and Ritek … no problems really with any of them. An odd dead disk, ussually due to physical abuse rather then degradation.

I’ve got some Princo’s (DVD-R) that I plan on storing forever before I use them, haha :wink:


#8

I picked one month, even though in a stack of 100 CD-Rs, I may use like 60 to 70 in a week, then have the rest sit for several weeks.
