    Don't worry so much about it. Whichever format you select it will be
    around long enough for you to use it and when something newer/better
    comes along you can move all your data to that format.

    I went with DVD+R/RW. It works fine for backing up my picture archive
    and that's all it needs to do.

    Having a dual-format DVD burner means you can record both formats (duh!)
    ... so get two blank discs and record in both formats! (duh squared)

    As long as at least one is still readable, you don't have to care which one.

    CD-R is just fine. FOR NOW. Long before it's actually obsolete there will
    be something newer readily available. That's required by the definition of
    the word "obsolete." So, whatever that is, get one, and copy all your CD-Rs.

    Until then, worrying about it is mostly just bad for your health.

    In order for the "format wars" to "finish" there would have to be some
    *ultimate* technology. Then what happens when, a week later, someone
    figures out how to do even better?
    Therefore, to answer your question about nonsense - I'm afraid so.
