    Fifty years from now, I wonder how many M-Disk readers will still be functioning?
    Or, how many people reading this forum will still be functioning to give a d***.

    A well cared for DVD, should be good for about thirty years. That's much longer
    than I'll need mine, that's for sure.

    But in the greater scheme of things, optical media, well cared for, will be readable
    long after magnetic media has lost its mind.

    I have hundreds of old floppy disks, both 5.25" and 3.5", that are no longer readable. Too bad too, as
    there were some great programs and games on those disks. Oh well..........

    :cool:
