DVD-R media.. archival quality that will last as long as possible.. what is the best brand or type? Or should I stick with acid-free paper.

TDK makes Armor Plated DVD-R for archival use.

Response by poster: hmm.. sounds like acid free paper is a more sure bet.. or stone tablets.

Ritek is what most people who burn dvd movies recomend. High quality ink vs the cheap stuff makes all the difference.

The folks I know who have tried them swear by MAM-A blanks for CD and DVD-R.
