I wonder how long a dvd disc is good for

The time data lasts on the DVD is one issue, but the lack of a true DVD standard could be the other.

Imagine buying a DVD-R recorder, to find out that one year later the DVD standard has been agreed: And its DVD+R.
This is apparantly the reason why the company I work for wont go for a DVD Jukebox system as a backup system.
Sounds suspect to me, but I see the logic - I just doubt it will be a major bastard if that happens.

I use a SCSI tape beackup system I got for cheap at an auction.
Access times are clearly not the beast, but the transfer speeds andease of use are rather neat.

I haven't heard a solid figure, so if you hear one, let me know. I got my dvd burner a few months ago and really like it. The only downside is, if the disc gets scratched, you run the risk of losing a lot more data than on a cd (since the dvd holds nearly 7 times more data in the same amount of space). So be careful with them!

I guess its time to buy a dvd burner, family photos are not something I wish to see get corrupted.

Agreed. You get what you pay for, and I don't use those "no brand name-CompUSA-50 on a spindle" that are so cheap you can actually hold one up to a light and see right through it.

I've been using some noname (no label on the CD either) 200 pack for $50 for a while and I haven't had much of a problem. Bit less durable due to no protection on the label side, but that's it. Perhaps it hasn't been long enough.

I sure hope not, I've got some that have to be six years old that still read fine.
