CD-R data discs not so great for media storage. What else is there?
I regularly burn MP3 files onto CD-R discs (as data). I also regularly burn JPEGS onto CD-R discs (as data). I sometimes combine both picture and music files onto one data disc and access it often.
I notice every now and then i have problems accessing files from these CD-R discs.
Sometimes, when listening to tracks off the disc, viewing a slideshow of pictures (from the same disc), becomes hard to do (as the images freeze up). NOt always though. ANd no, i don't suspect this to be a spyware-related problem
I think burning MP3z and JPEGz onto CD-R's is not always wise right? As CD-R's can become corrupted and are not reliable (especially generic ones)?.
The question is then, how should I be storing my precious songs and travel pictures. I wish to keep both of these media filetypes for many years to come.
Do I have to burn CD-R after CD-R and watch my files slowly slip away to corruption or is there a better way?
I've considered online storage (but I burn 700MB of media files) at a time. What resource will allow me to store that much content forever?
What have been your experiences?
