After finding that some of my only 5 year old cd-s containing precious family photos have mysteriously died I started looking more carefully into how to preserve my digital photo archive. 
Though the digital bits can be copied infinitely without losses, the media that carries them is doomed to die and fast. Wrote down what i found out about todays digital media lifetime:

If someone has other suggestions for storing digital photo archive for amateurs I'm all ears. I'm still trying to find ways to make it easier cheaper and less time consuming.

Should solve the problem.  And the "about to be released" DVD version is supposed to be write-able on any BluRay DVD burner.  I'm looking into this for archival purposes, myself.
