CD your Photo Piles


Officeworks Print Computers can put your camera photos onto a CD for $7.. You can put many 100 s easily..You can photo your old photos & add them..This can be put into a DVD player & watch all your photos- big screen.Ive made dozens,some with 500 camera photos..If worried about losing the CD make 2 CDs & send 1 to a relative to keep at home..Also makes a EXC present to give/ send .as they are very light in a envelope..

CDs have a very limited life. CDs are a bit pointless these days. I don't know one with a CD player. Also at 30+mb files that is only 23 photos per CD.

My last trip would require 174 CDs, & that's with my 11 year old camera!

CDs are more robust than a hard drive.
In any case with either medium , I would have a duplicate backup.
And write a new copy every 5 years, or a bit less.

Ive lost data due to CD / DVD bit rot and hard drives dying over the years.
DO not use the cheapest CD or DVD either.
