CD-R MACHINES DEFINITION (continued): …  estimated to be between five and 10 years. One expert from IBM estimates longevity at two to five years. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published results of accelerated aging tests on CD-Rs and DVD-Rs in 2004. CD-Rs that used phythalocyanine dye and had a gold and silver alloy coating performed best. Overall, the study estimated that 13% of discs would fail within 50 years, if the media was stored under normal office environmental conditions. NIST and the Library of Congress are now collaborating to determine the life expectancy of DVD-R media. They hope to develop a …
