Tried and tested - archive the films or slides.

Subject: filmscanners: Best digital archive medium for scans?
| Hello folks,
| Although this isn't strictly a scanning issue, I suspect other list
| have thought about this as well and adopted solutions.
| Basically, I am looking for a long term (20 years+) storage medium to
| archive my scans on. I don't have faith in CDR and tapes are also prone to
| long term problems so the only solution I can see is a magneto optical
| Another problem is that it is all well and good to have a bomb proof
| but it is no good if no one makes the hardware to read it in a few years
| So is there a clear cut winner out there? The two affordable options I am
| looking at are either the Iomega Optical drive or the Panasonic DVD-RAM.
| Iomega seems to support a format which has some penetration in the market
| but the DVD-RAM looks like it might not have got very far. I am running
| NT4.0 by the way.
| Any advice on this matter gratfully received!
