I was reading this month's AARP bulletin (the American Assoc. of Retired
Persons) had a short blurb which stated that:
CD-R and CD-RW when recording music or videos have a life of 2-5 years.
The "burning" of them actually shortens the life. I would assume this
applies to data recordings as well (I'm sure some IT professionals out
there will correct this assumption if needed).
See this article "CD Life Span" in Computerworld
