I save the audio as NRG (Nero) then burn the disc from that. If the disc is 
problematic, I simply burn another one. As someone who has gone through a 
fire, I found that the hard drive is the safest place for a backup. I had 
some flawed Ritek CDRs and switched to JVC-Taiyo Yuden I haven't had a 
problem with them but now unavailable-Mickey

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] CD-R life

Hi
This is based on research made at the National sound archives in Israel by
the late Engineer Avi Nachmias and myself. It was sparked by errors showing
up on CD's that were supposed to be archival grade (Mitsui) and others like
TDK, etc. Different dyes. Too late for me to go into all our findings, and
I'll be happy to present it at ARSC if invited, but yes, some CD's have a
life span of less than two years. Others will last longer, but most will
fail sooner than later. Basically, CD's that are kept in total darkness
with no label attached, that were burnt at X8, or X4 speed will last
longer.
