I am not sure if this best location for this question, if not please move where you think appropriate. But I thought it would be a GREAT newbie question. I am searching for the best method to store DVD's to preserve longevity? I have seen some actual standard DVD holders that will touch the bottom surface of a DVD. You can tell by slightly pressing the edge of the DVD while in the DVD case and see that there is no give. I use black, slim jewel cases that have a small outer ring that rests against the hub to keep that surface off the plastic. But why store vertically? If the disc is not touching the plastic then why would that make a difference? I can see why CD Wallets are bad for burned media but not for pressed media. I have used CD Wallets for the last 15 years for pressed CD's and burned CD's and never had a problem. Not sure why this would make a difference for DVD's? I would appreciate any feedback on this issue.
