Wow, that means the NSA will have our info for all them years and if you did something wrong they’ll dig you up 500 years later & prosecute you postmortem.

I’ve been looking for discs that I can put in my lasagna.

Err, I think I’m in a time warp or something here. M Disc has been around for a few years!
They may last a long time, but they are very expensive and were only single layer.
The LG recorders started off really cheap, now they seem to be fairly expensive.
I found the discs won’t always play, especially on other drives and sometimes won’t play on the recorder that wrote it. One thing is for sure, I won’t buy any more.
How can this be just announced? I tried some early last year and I’m sure they’ve been around longer than that.

I think 100 is more than enough… lol.

I would imagine the technology to read the discs will be the bigger issue rather than lifespan.

I imagine cd lasers will stop being put in optical drives in the not to distant future. I’ve been burning cd’s since the late 90’s. So 20 or 25 years maybe. That’s all you need :wink:

considering when cd/dvd disks first came out, however many years ago that was, they were sold as being ‘indestructible’. that proved to be the biggest load of crap going! so all that is happening here is, the disks we should have had 25years or so ago, we are only getting now, and at a premium price but wont necessarily work properly anyway! just the sort of info you expect to get from companies working very closely with the entertainments industries.

As Zod says, what use is a disc that lasts a thousand years! I wonder how many optical players will be around on 50 years. Maybe in a museum. I can imagine one of these discs being found in a time capsule in say nine hundred years time and the conversation would go like this:-
Look R2 a nine hundred year old optical data disc, yeah C3 very nice, I guess we will never know what’s on it, we ain’t got nothin’ to play it on!

I guess I’m going to have to live long enough to verify this. :wink: :bigsmile:

I think people are seeing this story wrong and simply seeing the 1000 years and running with it.

The way I am reading it is these will survive the conditions that worry me about my DVD-R disks and that is heat and sunlight.

The organic dye in my disks I really worry about accidentally leaving my disk too near a hot running elecrtical device and ruining my burning. So I want to get these for that purpose alone.

People still burn DVDs?
