filmscanners: Burning CD's



Appologies if this arrives twice. Internet provider has been down - I did try using an alternative account but this appears to have got filtered out by the mailing list server.
 
Re-writables are a very poor choice for anything you want to keep long-term as they have relatively very poor archival properties and in general are just not anywhere as reliable as writables. They are also much more prone to damage.
 
Re-writeables are also a poor choice for anything where you give the disc away as writables are cheaper and
some early computer CD-ROMs and many non-computer CD readers will not read these discs at all.
 
Re-writables are useful for :
 
      short term temporay storage (particulary if used with packet writing software [DirectCD,InCD etc])
      moving some data from one machine to another where there is no decent network or internet connection
      possibly a rotatational backup system of critical files (eg use 4 discs in rotation - a different one every week)
      some sort of test CD (eg one with auto-loading software that you want to test before making the real disc)

I'm just getting started in CD burning.  I saw that my options in blank CD
are between Rewritable and Write Once Only.  Is there any preference between
the two for photographic image storage?  My inclination is to think that
Rewritable would be preferable because of the possible need to adjustments in
the image.

Thanks in advance for your input.
