Is there a Use by date for CD/DVD Media??
Around 2001, I bought a pack of Office Depot CD-R blanks which ATIP says are "Multi Media Masters". Late last year, I couldn't burn the blanks I had left anymore so into the trash they went . Therefore, I'd guess about a year at the most for the crappier brands if they use the green cyanine dye. This is going back a few years, though, so I don't know if Office Depot has switched technologies of manufacturers since then. Also, they may not have been stored in the coolest spot in the house so it may have decayed faster than average.
My Taiyo Yudens, Mitsui Gold, and Kodak Ultimas are still burnable to this day :bigsmile:
Unfortunately the latter two are no longer available
