So, how long does a cd really last?

My old Stevie Wonder cd’s from the album “Songs in The Key of Life” are going strong soon turning 40 years or so.

How many years more?

Well, I will report back in ten years time. :-)

I own thousands of CDs and I've had one that decayed to the extent it couldn't be played. So far :)

My wife and I still have a load of CDs in storage. Seems daft to get rid of them when we paid so much for them in the first place.

I sometimes wonder if any of the mid-to-late 80s ones are worth anything. Too busy to find out though.

They are worth absolutely nothing! Just send them to me and get yourself some more storage room........
