I wonder  if these will work on my DVD as at the moment i cannot watch VCD's recorded on CDR's? Does anyone know if this may work?

you can not see the "burned" area on the disk when the copy is done.  Are there any objections to these type of disks that would make their use
undesirable?  Will use these exclusively unless there are objections.

So, what longevity problems do old colorless/blue/green/gold cd-r's have?
Do I have to re-burn all my cd-r's on the new black ones or what?  I have
priceless (to me anyway) rarities by a whole slew of bands, and I don't
want to worry about the media they're stored on self destructing!
