i spoke with an archivist a few years ago, he said that the data imbedded in CD's begins to break down after about fifteen years. that was before CD-R's were bigtime, but most of the CD-R's i've seen are pretty cheaply made so i wouldn't think they'd last as long as industrial CD's. but again, this information is a few years old.
