Well I have a habit of storing/backing up everything I've downloaded, like all movies, games, animes etc on DVDs. I have burned 400+ DVDs in past 4-5 years. Now I am facing problems storing them.
Usually, I have to move around with all or a portion of DVDs as I come to home on long vacations from my uni. I have tried following methods,
0. Jewel cases. They are the best in storage, but too expensive, take too much space, and totally impractical to carry around in huge volumes.
1. Paper sleeves. Made by myself from A4 offset papers. Best after jewel cases, but require too much time and patience to create and maintain. Decays with time.
2. Cake boxes. I use it for temporary storage after burning. They tend to damage the discs if dust get into them. Highly damaging if carried around.
3. CD wallets. I've used wallets since 2009, they were pretty good. But recently the discs I'm putting on the wallets are going bad really fast. I've had 6 cases where new verbatim/mitsubishi discs went bad within weeks after burning when put on a full CD wallet (I guess there were pressure issues and bending). But some 4 year old classic discs which were on that wallet at the same time doesn't have any problem. I'm still investigating that matter.
So, does anyone have suggestion for anything better? And also, I'm looking for one of these, http://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-like-...=aluminium+dvd. Did anyone find anything like this on Bangladeshi market?
