I don't trust DVD stability/longevity at all. I've had quality branded
DVD's corrupt themselves after as little as 3m or fail to read on a drive
other than the one that created them (though that's an older problem from
early days).

Worst example was one that I drove to a client 40mls away, on a very
urgent deadline. It had verified and test loaded fine here on 2 different
drives, and they couldn't read it, they could only see the directory
entries. I had to go back home, burn another and drive back again. Later I
tried the problem disk and I couldn't open the files either. It really put
me off DVD, unlike CD, where I have never had a disk go bad in up to (so
far) 13 years.
