burned cd’s are only good for 2 to 5 years
I read an article that said burned CD’s are not good after several years. It said that ones you buy at the store will last a lot longer but the ones you burn at home will not and there is very little you can do about it. Most people get the cheapest CD’s they can find and those are the ones that only last 2 years. So back to tape is the conclusion. Even hard drives don’t last very long.
