They're only disposable if you dispose of them, which clearly you have.

Yeah, actually cds are becoming more of a collectible commodity. The original cd of the download in the center of my signature goes for over $120, and the one on the bottom goes for about $45.

In the late 80's, I remember that the Strafe Fur Rebellion CD's were prone to disc-rot. Matter of fact, Vinyl Edge records (Houston) only sold "opened" Strafe Fur Rebellion CD's. Something about the paper the artwork was printed on. As long as you kept the artwork away from the CD, it was fine. I purchased 'Vogel' the week it was released back in 89 and haven't had any problems with it. The artwork has sort of faded and changed, but it's been stored away from any CD's.

yes the nirvana hoarmoaning australian tour ep has been selling over the last few years for over 70 euros, i'm not selling mine though, at least not at this stage. some copies in australia have been sold for over $3000 to collector nuts that are willing to pay big money.

Wow. It's a great CD but that much!? I have a Japanese CD issue from 92 that stores were selling for about 15 bucks. I wonder if it's worth anything?

I bought a blue vinyl copy a little while ago, but I think it's just a recent reissue, not one of the originals from back then.

Straying from the OP a bit, but... While it's true that vinyl generally is more collectible, there are still some great collectible CDs out there. Not a lot, but some. Like that Hormoaning CD, obviously. Also some things that are only available on CD are defiinitely worth checking out, if one is after that music. For example, some of the John Peel sessions, like one I own of Th' Faith Healers.

Yeah keep em all in a big case and you should be fine. Some people just leave 'em lying around, which is totally dumb if you plan on actually keeping them...

I have had this problem a few times but not that many but it goes to show how superior vinyl is in the age span department, not to mention sound quality etc. Pity you cant take them out with you.

That's probably "theoretical" as in "when you never play them".

Audiophiles are generally known to have a lifespan of just 80 years or so as well.

Last night I was helping my wife load songs on her new mp3 player, and the last track one of her Duran Duran cds wouldn't work properly.

I've got cdr's I burned starting in 2000 that still play fine and show no errors when I extract the files. I even used to write on the tops where the data is JUST underneath and can see the ink 'bleed' and spread out and those discs still play fine. I just haven't had a problem yet that I keep hearing about.

What, do people burn at too high of a speed ? Use lousy hardware, the cheapest cdr's ? I use Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui, but even some of the old memorex and sony's are still undamaged.

I think people just aren't anal enough about their music storage. Then again, isn't that how you get dickrot ? LOL
