    Any idea of what brand? My husband bought some cheaper no-name brand a few years back and is very disappointed as they are very poor quality and haven't stood the test of time.

    At that price they are going to be unbranded, in the past optical drives were pretty fussy what dye they would work with so it was easy to buy dvd's that didnt work well with your kit, today I find that most drives will read/write to just about everything, but its a risk you take with discounted product I guess.

    I'd be cautious about relying on disks to be an enduring medium full stop crafty. They're pretty vulnerable to damage. I had this same conversation with another guy the other day. If your storing something for a long time I reckon its better to go with and external hard drive. They're not perfect but at least the casing provides protection.

    You say that but I have yet to have a disc that has burned properly fail to read back, even after years of storage.
    But I have had several external hard drives fail within the warranty and if your storing 250 or 500GB of info on a hard drive thats an awful lot of info gone if it fails.
    I tend to go belt and braces these days and back up my pc stuff to an external hard drive but also copy valued data like family photo's or video clips of the family onto dvd as well just to be on the safe side.

    my friends are into building redundant storage for their home networks. running zFS and they just add more drives to increase their storage capcity as they run out :O

    they've got all their tv and movies etc on it now
