When was the last time you burnt a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray?

Posted 29 November 2011 - 10:00 AM

Someone asked me the other day to burn them a CD of something... I realized I don't even have a CD burner in my computer... haven't for several years. I just use thumb drives, or email stuff to people. When was the last time you actually burnt a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray?

I used an iso to make an OS disc a few weeks ago.

EDIT:
Oh, I also burnt DBAN the same day :)

Just burnt my Win7 image onto a disk the other day... new computer parts come in this week and installing that way (only have 1 small pen drive, I cloud my data that I need to be portable).

I randomly burn SegaCD and Saturn images when I'm in the mood to play a game. More often then not the burned copies for games go missing constantly and instead of hunting through my house just to find a scratched and tattered disk... I just burn a new copy. The originals stay in their cases in the game closet.

I still make MP3 cds regularly to play in my car. I don't feel like upgrading my cd player in my cars yet so thats pretty much the only time i burn anything anymore.

Five years ago, I insisted upon having a super awesome megamazing LiteScribe drive. I installed it, paid through the nose for a spindle of special disks, and used it once. Once.

I use my dual-layer bluray burner to make back-up disks.
With multiple 1 & 2 terrabyte drives I have to do something for backups and discs don't experience motor or head failure.

Sometimes I mail a data disc to our home office. Just so all the source code they pay me for is backed up and off site, in their hands.

But otherwise I have little need. All of my movies and TV shows and music etc. sit on hard drives and are visible throughout the house to all the other rooms.

Most times my disc drive is just used to rip movies I've bought to hard drive. In my world discs are really just the media you buy in stores to get the digital content home and to hard drive. Then the packaging is tossed and the disc goes in a binder in storage.

I trust CD-R/DVD-R as a backup for only under a year, especially in the humidity here in Florida. I've got numerous 'back-ups' of movies and games that fail to be read by most drives because corrosion has already started eating them up (and this is being stored in jewel cases in a dark room).

2-3 weeks ago for my wife and mom. They each wanted a music CD and while my mom has a vehicle with a USB socket (she wouldn't know how to use it), the wife doesn't.
