Thread Name: TECH: How long do CDRs last?
Subject: RE: TECH: How long do CDRs last?
The biggest difference between cheap and expensive disks, other than quality control, etc, is the dye used in making them. That and something involving multiple layers that I don't really understand. The good ones advertise hundreds of re-writes and a decade or more of stability. I wonder how they know.

A brilliant engineer might be able to compare the specs of a Saturn and a Hummer and decide which was more efficient, I don't know. Take half a ton off the Hummer and they may be the same.
