The above link will take you to page 3 of an 8 page thread. I'm trying to learn from this. I bought some 'made in Japan' Fuji CD-R to use for important backups. Supposed to be made by Tayo Yuden which are some of the most reliable. I have less reliable, cheapo CD-R too.

If you have data that you care about, back it up.

If you have data that you care about, back it up to something that is not CD-R or CD-RW.

Good alternatives include magnetic tape.
