So your thinking to keep all your precious stuff by recording it to DVD. May be back up your photos from memory card to DVD or indeed use a company to copy your videos to DVD.
Well do you remember all the hype when CDs and DVds first came out?
There both great formats but please be realistic when using recordable discs. When you burn a disc in your PC, or indeed when any recordable disc is produced, a laser uses light to generate heat and burn away dye within that disc.
So what we are actually saying here is that recordable discs are sensitive to light....!!!!
Please remember to store the discs sensibly, away from direct light and heat. That way you will get the best life time from them.
