DVD backup data vanishes after a few months



Would appreciate any advice or views on this subject!

Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5

Having used Creator Classic for a few years to burn file backups to CD with excellent results I decided to try DVD's for the extra storage space available and opted for Verbatim archival quality +R 4.7 GB disks.


The burn was successful and the two, spanned, disks stored in a dark, dry and safe place. Some four months later they were needed for re-installation on a new computer and the disks were unable to be read.

There were no problems reading the CD's mentioned earlier. :)

Have you tried to read the disks on another computer to verify that it's the DVDs themselves that cannot be read? For them to fade after only a few months is possible, but unusual.
