Specifically a liteon dvd multi recorder. Which can burn and read dvd's. Is there a specific number of burns which you can use? And after that, the burner will no longer work? Do you know of any useful tips on how to have a longer dvd rom lifespan?If it has really a lifespan.
Lifespan only depends on the environment. If there is much dust/smoke/dirt/etc it may break sooner.
Also if the Drive isnt used regularly (reading CD or DVD is enough), it will break sooner.
depends on the DVD too and the speed you wrote the DVD/CD. As fast as you write more problems you will have. I have different kinds of CD and DVD stored under the same condition. Sometimes I have problems reading a 4 year old disc and can read an older disc without problems.
With time, the CD/DVD start to deteriorate and lose information.
Kodak has a CD/DVD that they say will keep the data for 100 years.
