Different storage devices are in use today. There are many devices that can be used to transfer files too. Pen drives have made the job really easy for one and all. However, the popularity of discs still remains intact mainly because it is one of the most secure storage devices available today. The portable hard drives and pen drives can help to share media content but chances of data loss are quite high. This is different when it comes to DVDs and CDs. If you can protect these discs from scratches, you will be able to keep your files safe for long.
It is the first and foremost aspect to consider that while duplicating your music disc, you are able to maintain its quality or not. For a successful media promotion it is important to make sure that your media looks professional. With the help of the home printers such as inkjet, you can print your music disc at home. But, this type of printer takes a long time to print the discs and consumes lots of ink as well. Not only this, but such printer is not UV protected unless you coat the CDs or DVDs yourself. With it, you cannot get the professional quality that you are looking for. Only with the high-grade equipment, you can get the supreme print quality that undoubtedly is ensured by the disc duplication company.
On the other hand CDR’s do not have lands and pits like a ROM, but have a reflective metal layer that is on top of a special dye. When there is no information on the disc, this dye allows light to shine through and reflect back off the metal. But when heated, this dye layer becomes dark and does not allow a reflection. So when a CD is burned it is actually burning this dye layer in the form of ones and zeros, putting the data on the disc. When the disc is playing and the red laser is able to shine through reflect back, it is interpreted as a one. If the red laser is unable to reflect back due to a darkened area, it is interpreted as a zero. So even though a CD-R does not have “lands” and “pits” it still performs like a regular disc because of the special dye layer.
DVD and CD sleeves and envelopes also don’t look as professional and presentable as jewel cases. If you plan on doing DVD or dvd duplication service for profit, you might not attract as many people if you use these materials. If you plan on handing out the CDs or DVDs without any cost to the audience, then sleeves and envelopes may be a good option.
While CDs may indeed store a lot of data, they are also prone to get damaged if they are not taken cared of properly. Proper care for CDs includes placing them in a CD case where the surface of the CD would be protected from scratches. It also means that the CDs should not be placed in an area where it would be hit directly by sunlight.
