Hello all, I am new here to these boards. I’ve recently been trading dave matthews band concerts with fellow fans and I’m now running into trouble with storage. Most of the concerts are 3 discs a piece. I’ve got three questions.
All of my discs are burned on 80 min Imation (CMC) discs. I want my stuff to last as long as possible. I take maticulus care of all my cds, but I especially want to make sure these things last because you cant go out and simply buy new ones. Should I re burn all of these onto some other brand of discs to ensure max life?
What is the best way to store cdrs to ensure max life. Right now I have them all in a cd binder type thing, but I was thinking about going to jewel cases because the binder requires you to slide them in and out possibly resulting in very small scratches. Is it possible that a binder could eventually lower the lifespan of the cds?
Could there possibly be any other form of mass storage other than cdr that would be better (hard drive, minidisc etc)?
