I have seen concern with people and cheap media. Some people get the cheap media to work great while others do not. Most people write about burning errors or the media not being compatiable with there burners or players. My question is lets say the media records reat with my burner, plays great on my dvd player, will the data stay intact to be played time and time again. I mean I read about people saying the media is only good for 12 months or 6 months and so on. If you take care of your disks and dont scratch them will the data stay there indefinitly? Or does something happen to the data over time? What will cause a disk not to work after 12 months if the disk is still in perfect condition? Just a question?
