This question has been on the back of my mind for a while now. From the diverse literature available on the interwebs, I read different things. Some places say that after 3ish years your DVD-Rs stop working (burnt ones, I mean), others have other figures.
I'm just wondering, and I'd like to know with some measure of certainty, what is the safest way to go about safeguarding your DVD-Rs for the years to come.
Should one proceed to, every few (3 or so) years, re-burning discs to avoid them becoming obsolete, or is it sufficient to just burn them well the first time, store them in a proper casing, in the shadows (far away from contact with high temperatures or strong light/heat), and they should be fine?
Let us know what you think/have found out.
