Archive CD

Sun Sep 19 07:19:12 CDT 2004

Dear colleagues,

I do not know if you know, but many CD are stop working in few years.
I did some research and found:

Some CD are not good at all and in many cases some CD become unreadable
after 3 years.

DO NOT use sharpie markers or any other acid base pen to label cd's or
dvd's. The acid in these pens etches through the top of the disk destroying
your data.

IMO, Mitsui is the absolute best for CD-R or DVD-R:

And not use maximum speed.

It is essential to remember that a CDR is -absolutely not- an archival copy
of your data.

Any further comment?

Keep care and be of good cheer
