Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

10-4, to that Rex.

I don't stay home with out one.

Be sure to wear a Zapatopi when using it to rip. The media may contain subliminal mind control radiation.

For this usage I recommend without hesitation to use DVD-RAM !

Read for example this articles:
" Study says DVD-RAM provides safest bet for data storage "
http://www.cdfreaks.com/news/9765
" Think twice before you write once "
http://www.storagesearch.com/pegasusart3.html

Burners on the market that can burn DVD-RAM are for example:
LG 4163
LG 4167
Pioneer 110
Nec 4550
Panasonic LF-M821
This last one can even burn DVD-RAM in a protective cartridge ( so no fingers, dust or scratches on it)

« DVD-RAM media is the most appropriate media for large file storage and recovery, since it combines an error correction system and BCM (Bismuth Coupling Material) recording layer technology, which improves signal to noise ratio for higher reliability during high-speed recording.

As Maxell stated: "DVD-RAM is an advanced recording media format that offers a range of digital data applications. Its phase-change recording material allows discs to be re-recordable and erasable, and a superior defect management system ensures accurate recording and playback. DVD-RAM allows instant, random access to any location on the disc for fast and easy data reading and writing. Because DVD-RAM supports fast formatting and no finalizing, it is an extremely easy-to-use media. And with DVD-RAM, changes can be made directly on the disc without the need to transfer data to a hard drive first, speeding up the editing tasks..." »
