That's the question.
Well.... in 2005 all my dvd's were stolen including cds.... along with my both my sisters.... never replaced them.
The few i had prior to the bluray archive i've created, were given to people as gifts.... anything i would have had would have gone and been sold at any place that would have wanted to buy them to stock their shelves.
whatcha mean "obsolete" ??
I still buy CDs personally, and being a born hoarder I still have all my DVDs
They are not obsolete.
I still buy music CDs. I also buy the occassional DVD for those movies/series which do not have a BR release.
What about all those CDs/DVDs that were burned as back ups from ...WAY BACK WHEN??? I still have 'too many to count' CDs...and then DVDs...that I burned as back ups ... since at that time, they were saying the storage life of these things could be as many as 75 years.
I gave all the kids films from disney and pixar etc to my local junior school , all the music cd's went to the local library
I hoard my old discs too! I also burn a new disc from time to time. It's less often than once a month, but occasionally a need arises.
I have all of them. Not that many, perhaps about 200.
In the past I have destroyed some of them on purpose to throw to the garbage.
I know people who use them as coasters and as wall etc decorations.
apparently a whole bunch of CDs strung together with string / wire makes a good pigeon scarer
for city folks with pigeon problems
They have been known to keep deer out of the garden if hung on the fence... The deer around here though would probably rip them down and make tools or someshyt....
I still have all my music CDs (minus ones I've lost along the way) and to me they have sentimental value. I don't buy music CDs anymore, but I did take a disc or two with me to play back when I had a car.
oh they totally do, you're just doing it wrong
what you have to do is crush em up, pack em into 12 gauge shells, and shoot the deer with them
old CD buckshot will definitely keep the deer away
I look at this 2 ways:
1) if I have the Blu-Ray version of a DVD, DVD goes to charity. Music CDs, I still have every single one. Laser Discs too.
2) Consumer burned CDs/DVDs have a shelf life. So, that begs the question: how many of your burned CDs/DVDs still work? I've got a ton of burned discs around, and I seriously couldn't tell you if they all still work or not. I have come across a few, ones that have software on them that I used to use a lot (such as a collection of software that I would use to setup PCs, or one that had a version of Autopatcher on it for use on XP SP3.. neither disc works anymore).
We don't throw our old Dvds and Cds . We just keep it here in a shelf just like old books around. For some reasons, those have important values too.
I put them on a shelf.
When I want to watch the film stored on an obsolete DVD I insert it into my "obselete" Blu-Ray drive and it plays through my "obsolete" media player.
When I want to listen to the music stored on an obsolete CD I insert it into my "obselete" Blu-Ray drive and it plays through my "obsolete" media player, assuming I haven't previously ripped it.
Coasters depending on the condition
Quite simple for me.
I remember those. You install Windows ME with it.
Keep them! They're so nice to look back on and remember my youth
