DVD vs. CD for archiving
« on: June 26, 2004, 07:24:04 PM »
What does everybody trust more as far as longevity of the media?  Trying to decide if its worth my time to rearchive my SHNs onto DVD from CD.

working on SHN backups for now, no DVD burner here, slow ass shitty old computer that barely can handle a transfer...  its easy, and for $.20 a disc or less, thats not bad to archive shns on, put them all on a spindle with a label, and you know what you have, and they are all there ready to go.  peace.

I have been archiving on DVD.  I'm not too concerned with longevitiy as I know I will eventually convert what I have on dvd to whatever is used in the future.  From what I hear the next thing is a DVD that holds 10 X more data than the current ones.  That would be almost 50 gigs on one disc.  When that happens, ill migrate the collection to that media.

double-sided DVDs accomplish the same thing.  Dual-layer double-siders can hold 17GB, nifty eh?

I believe your refferring to Blue laser burner's. They are more like 25gigs per layer.  I sappose they could make dual layered blue laser discs.  it's going to be quite some time until these hit the consumer market, if ever.  They are intended for HDTV, which takes approx. 12gigs per hour.

WOW...looks like he is here to toot his own horn.  He now has a computer that everyone else had 2 years ago, lol.  If we are here to do that then lemme tell you i have a laptop with a 4x dual +/- burner and 32 bit soundcard and I have had that for about a year already the list goes on....lol, big deal, a computer doesnt make you who you are Creek! and your burner on your laptop is probably a 2x or something like that, so don't pretend to have something cool when you don't, or at least do you reasearch first.  :D

Don't be a jackass, Crobs808, CF isn't tooting his own horn.  What in his statement could possibly have indicated he's tooting his own horn?  Nothing, that's what.  He just happened to fall into a no-cost laptop:

But I suppose he should've turned it down because it isn't up to par with your laptop, Mr. Horn-Tooter.  Engage your brain before posting, please.

i seem to recall another incident of what might be called "tooting..."

it was EAC, i had the highest quality settings on, and it still sucked.  I have a kick ass computer, so i know it isnt that.  I even ran it on my server computer which is a dual processor (2) amd-64fx chips each with 1.5mb cache and 3.0ghz each, and it still ran slow as hell with the settings I wanted it to have, multi pass, good quality, etc...oh well. since my site is all up and sounds great using audoigrabber and nero to convert to RM files, I am fine.  Check it out.. http://www.concretepie.com/

uh? What you just said makes no sense, stil trying to figure out what you are trying to get at.

I was just commenting on how I will be using DVD to archive soon myself and why....not sure what that has to do with tooting my horn but I guess you have nothing better to do today.

do my research? try doing yours....who would use an internal soundcard on their lappy to tape? I'm using firwire, but maybe that would explain why your tapes suck.  ;D

And for the record....no one had this laptop 2 years ago, unless you are good at time traveling.  ;D
