No, it's not manufactured by CMC.
Mitsubishi (MCC) makes it.

There is much difference between a DVD CMC and a DVD Mitsubishi?

DVD Verbatim Mitsubishi is good for long-term archiving? how old a DVD verbatim mitsubishi can store my files without any problems?

-- merged --

This DVD-R Verbatim is good and original? see the link: http://www.linharesvideo.com.br/x__D...C-10-1344.html

If it has the AZO logo, it should be excellence. In fact, the best media you can buy.

That question has already been answered, several times and in other threads that you posted. AZO is a trademark process used by Verbatim. See post #5, above. The answer is yes.

AZO can be used by CMC on this disc DVD-R Verbatim?

AZO is organic or inorganic?

Organic. You could have found that yourself on the internet. http://www.allianceorganics.com/pigments.html

Quote:
The main source of organic pigments are plants and plant products whereas inorganic pigments are manufactured from topical cosmetic and also from dirt.

If you find that undesirable, buy something else.

That's already been addressed in several of your threads and in multiple forums. The guess is 8 to 10 years, maybe longer, maybe 100 years. No one knows for certain. If you play that DVD every day or very frequently, make a backup disc just in case.

No. Spindle packaging is not airtight. None of it is, not even with the spindle in a box, but it's better than one of those DVD envelopes or disc albums. Sounds as if you need to get a dehumidifier if moisture is that bad. If necessary, put an airtight non-polyethylene plastic bag around the spindle. Websites that deal with book and disc archival materials sell products designed for archival storage. A dehumidifier is cheaper.

Verbatim AZO is designed and manufactured to higher standards and use better materials than most manufacturers. They're known for reliability, which is why they cost more and why experts use them. I have hundreds of Verbatim DVD's I made more than 10 years ago. They are still intact. One of the SONY DVD's I made 6 years ago was a physical exercise video I played quite often, and it came apart at the layers after a couple of years. I saved the video by leaving it underneath a pile of heavy books for two days to flatten the layers, and rescued the video onto my PC. All of my old SONY DVD's have been replaced with Verbatim, with no problem.

1 I will not play every day, I'll burn dvd-r 1 time and store forever and I was wondering how old dvd-r will store the files

2 Verbatim AZO is unstable to heat and humidity? I have no way to verify the humidity where I store the dvd discs

3 you saw the packaging of verbatim dvd-r I posted? this packaging favors humidity penetrate the discs?

DVD discs are packaged to avoid damage from shipping and the climate. They are usually wrapped on the outside with plastic or cellophane. You have to remove the wrapper to use the discs. None of them are packaged to purposely "invite" damage from the climate.

If you don't know that the humidity levels in your premises are dangerous, perhaps you should have it measured to be certain. I live in a warm area near Atlantic Ocean beaches. It gets very warm and humid here during the summer. I haven't had any problems with DVD or BluRay discs. Many of my DVD's are 15 years old. None of them are in airtight containers. They are in spindles and in albums with acid-free plastic pockets.

Why? Do you have a problem with your discs coming apart all the time? It sounds as if you live in an area with frequent sunami's, monsoons, earthquakes, and biologically unsafe bacterial conditions. I know Brazil has some climate problems, but I also have very old DVD's stored for years in the Mississippi Delta where it hits 115F often with 100% humidity and makes you sweat like a pig in mud. Even in an airtight steel container, there's no protection from heat. All the DVD's my people own down there are still working, and have been working for years. They own air conditioners for the hot weather. You should have one, too. That should be good enough, unless you're in the habit of storing your DVD's in an oven or in the trunk of you car.

That's actually not at all true. There are several ways to test longevity with a great certainty.

Once a disc is burned, and confirmed to be good, it should last a minimum of 30 years. But that's just a cheaply made disc. The better the disc, the longer it last. It is doubtful that many will last 100 years, but it's not much different that video tape -- 35-65 years.

Sure, a disc may last 100 years or more, but I'm talking about media with a 99-100% integrity. Not just a disc/tape with any portion still readable, or in need of recovery.

The idea that a disc only last 5-10 years is ridiculous, and is traced to IBM propaganda from the early 2000s.
