i bought some cds 100 pack for like 10 bucks at fry's about 2 years ago... and i recently noticed that they are basically rotting away. they either turn a weird color or the edges start chipping.

what is the best brand cdr that last the longest? these are no name cdrs from frys and they are horrible.

    We use TDK disc's at work (the white one's that you can print on), and as we buy in large quantities they can sit in stock for a couple of years and they have always been fine.

    Saying that, I've never had a problem with any cheapo disc either ....

    You should look for CD-Rs that are well-supported by your burner.

    The overall result is influenced by the CD-R and burning quality so it is important to have a good match in medium and burner.

    Check the manufacturer website or google for media lists of your burner.

    Sunlight with kill CDR's; excessive heat to cold cycles will make them peel ; even intense floresent light will make the top one unusable. Most brands put a cardboard cover on or use a blackened blank as the top one. My neighbor was always complaining about CDR's and DVD's going bad until I mentioned to him that the bookshelf under the spare bedroom window was not a very good storage place. Now he keeps them in a drawer and his complaints have stopped.

  • We also use TDK and Dynex on my tech bench. Go for ones with a gold colored coding, that kind lasts the longest.
