7 Fatal Mistakes of Storing Data, Music and Photos on CDs
- Sharpie markers
may ruin a CD over time. Use TDK's CD marker instead ($5 for four).
- The best bet for
archival-quality CD-Rs is Mitsui Archival, which are rated for 400 years.
- Sunlight can ruin
a CD-R in as little as two hours – UV light damages the dye.
- Paper labels are
not proven to last, the adhesives may eat into the CD over
time, may partially come off, and may jam slot-loading
- The topside of
a CD is more vulnerable to scratches than the bottom.
- The U.S. Postal
Service now adds surcharges on mail containing CDs to cover hand sorting;
being fairly inflexible, the disks don't always survive automatice sorting.
- Hard cardboard
mailers provide the best protection for a CD, but cost more than bubble
wrappers to mail.
