Quote from: Altus on February 26, 2011, 03:45:27 PMI predict said CD-R has a label on it?I've discovered over the years that the glue on most labels eats the top layer of the disc, and the data is sitting on that top layer.

The music, of course, will be lo-ooo-ong gone. ;)That being said, I've had pretty good luck with my CD-Rs. I've been burning them for about 12 years and I've only had 2 or 3 go bad in storage. (I'm fudging -- I can actually remember only 2, but I suppose there may have been a 3rd.) I've always burned CDs at the slowest speed my set-up allowed (used to be 4X, now it's 8X) and I store them in dark, cool places.
