    Hello everyone,

    I have a lot of digital camera photos that I am planning to transfer to optical media. Currently, I only have a CDRW drive but I was looking into getting a DVD burner. Since DVDs can hold more data, it seems convenient to store my photos in fewer discs. I am concerned however on how DVD-R or DVD+R discs handle wear and tear of occasional use (scratches, dust, etc) and how reliable they are for data retrieval as compared to CDR discs. I currently use Fujifilm (Taiyo Yuden) CDRs for data backups. Would Taiyo Yuden DVD media be just as reliable for my purposes?

    Thanks. All advice appreciated.
