We've all read those articles, but here's the thing: Firstly, I started burning CD's several years ago and have yet to have any go bad.
Me neither, but I have had burns fail.
Secondly, by the time they would/might go bad, there will be other, more reliable, media available to transfer the data to. In fact, I've already done so by transferring several older CD's onto one DVD.
That's cool, it's just a lot faster and cheaper to back it up to a HDD.
