Ahh, I’ve been planning to write this one for awhile: an entire article on archival quality media. As I do professional software development as well as professional photography what a weird combination, I need archival quality CD and DVD media to store my data on.
However, one of the hardest things to is actually find good media, or even understand why it is good media. This article focuses on the history of Compact Discs, writable CD/DVD media, and why DVD R is superior to DVD-R. If you want to just know what media is worth buying, skip to the summary at the bottom.
