I gave up on finding the elusive RICOHJPN R02 / RICOHJPN R03 media coded discs, so I've been looking for another type of disc for long term storage / playback of backed up movies. I saw this disc as being "premium grade" on the website I found them on, so I decided to buy them. I was wondering if anyone out there that has had long term experience (at least 6 months of usage) can tell me if this disc is reliable. I recently bought a pack of 100 of them and have been backing up various flicks on them. I want to know if they're stored for a few months, then pulled out to use to make copies off of, or to view if they will give me freezing and skipping during playback, or worse yet, give the "no disc" message when played in the DVD player.
