Subject: RE: TECH: How long do CDRs last?
Don't be so unsure of tape storage. Remember the bad old days when all commercial music storage was on reel to reel tape? If you use a professional tape transport and store the tape properly, it will last for decades. The enemies are light, heat, and chemical degradation; and tape stretch with the resulting wow and loss of coating.
