Re: Gold DVD Question

Recently I was searching info on BD-R discs, and came across a site where the writer, who "sounded" authoritative, claimed that there was no point using gold DVDR's because while the gold may physically deteriorate more slowly, the gold also introduces or causes more errors during writing, thereby canceling out any claimed archival advantage to the gold. If this is true, then a good brand of DVD-R or DVD+r will be fine, sans gold. Almost universally agreed as "good brands": Verbatim(Mitsubishi Chemical Co--MCC), JVC/Taiyo Yuden(Yuden).

Personally, I've switched to BDR's, now that the discs can be gotten for under US$3 each.
