Well I only have my burner for 5 months and never had a problem I read on
a cd recording web page(who's URL I can't remember!) that a cd-r'life is
at least 20 year's keept well and even with some brands up to 100
year's(but that's hard to swallow!). But CD-R is not and never will be a
valid archiving tool.
