I am new to this game with my first paid wedding imminent after a good few practice runs. I have been reading various articles on the durability of DVDs. There doesn't appear to be any definitive answer - it's somewhere between 5yrs and 100yrs? I suddenly went into panic mode - supposing someone pays me X amount for the wedding DVD thinking it's for life and in 4 or 5yrs the information on it is lost. Where do I stand? Or I am missing something. I am creating in Final Cut and burning my finished projects on the Apple Mac disk utility. The quality is good and I have had no compatibility problems using Tiayo Yuden discs but should I be doing something different to ensure life expectancy of the DVD.
Does everyone write their own discs or do you use specialist authoring companies, which doesn't seem economical?
