Generally, manufacturers require that lifespans of DVD-R and DVD+R discs are from 30 to 100 years, and life spans of DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM can be up to 30 years. But we should know that with the development of disc producers, manufacturing methods and materials, we should pay more attention to the lifespans of disc.
2. Enjoy DVD on portable devices
As we all know, more and more people are willing to watch movies on phones or tablet especially when they are traveling. But it is impossible for them to watch DVD disc on most portable players. The main reason for that is there is no built-in DVD drive in phones and tablet.
