CD-R qualilty

16 years ago

Just a quip...

I was destroying some old back-up disks today -- rendering them useless by scratching the reflective plating through. Noticed that in the case of about six of them, my scratching caused large areas of the plating to spontaneously lift right off almost on its own. The surface bonding had almost completely failed. Brand name of these was Imation. They were five years old, stored cool, dry, and protected. Bought new at retail. Except for the back-up burning, never used.

Wouldn't have expected it. Now re-thinking quality considerations of CD's and DVD's.
