I just got done reading some article talkin about the longevity of CDs/DVDs. Apparently they don't last that long as I had previously thought, and cheap ones can go bad in like a year! Is this true? If so which brands offer the longest lasting stability? What specifically other than scratches and whatnot would make a good disk go bad? I was once a believer in getting the cheapest media available that wouldn't produce an instant coaster. Never imagined that I should also be worrying about it turning into a coaster at some random point in the future. Wouldn't it suck to find out 5 years down the road that all your backed-up pics and videos magically disappeared from the disk they were on?
