CD's and DVD's don't last forever!

2 replies 10 views Edited Feb 12, 2006
TO QUOTE ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE INTERNET , LAUREN WEISTEIN,
Barock,

Hi. I'm not a materials chemist, but my understanding of the situation
is that the various vectors for decomposition of these materials are
not limited just to surface intrusions. That is, even if the discs
were theoretically 100% perfectly sealed, chemical changes can occur
in the underlying substrate and related materials that could ruin
the data anyway. As I mentioned, much of these may be temperature
and humidity related, but the real problem is that we just don't
know -- and as you said we have an awful lot of our lives tied
up on these disks (think of all the photos, if nothing else for
the average family) and we don't *really* know how long they're going
to last.

Thanks for your note!

--Lauren--

Everything in this world has a half life, or shelf life. Nothing, and I mean nothing, lasts forever. CD's and DVDs are made to last 100 years. You will be dead before then, get over it.
Please do not send me a friend's request without telling me who you are and where I know you from. Thank you.
