Why physical media is the best way to protect your photos, music, and videos

Burning your data to disk is the best way to protect it. Not only do CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Rays store hours of music and hundreds of photos, they’re also cheap, durable, and take up very little space in your home.

Contrast that with cloud storage, where paid subscriptions can cost $5 plus every month and free plans limit you to a maximum of 15GB (equivalent to about three DVDs costing less than a dollar each). The cloud is also at risk of server failure or cyberattacks, and you’ve got to be connected to the internet to access your data.

Burning disks is therefore a great way to back up your data or to enjoy digital media on older devices that lack internet or streaming support (like car stereos). However, not all burning software is created equal. In fact, poor burning software can produce read/write errors in your disks that cause trouble when restoring your data.

We recommend Ashampoo Burning Studio 20 – the latest in a long line of exceptional burning software that goes far beyond the native application on your computer.

Why you should burn your photos, movies, and music to disk

I know what you’re thinking: Who burns CDs or DVDs anymore? Everything is in the cloud, right? Or on your phone, tablet, or computer. Who needs physical media?

Well, smart people do. Those who care enough about their pictures, videos, and other digital value to ensure that no matter what happens, they always have a backup.

Backup is a loaded word in our digital age. Do you regularly back up your devices? You probably know you should, but do you actually do it?

Cloud storage isn’t enough. What happens if Dropbox, Google, or Apple lost your data? What if they were hacked or suffered a massive server failure and all your precious family photo albums were lost?

Neither is storing your media across multiple devices. Imagine going on a trip and losing both your laptop and mobile phone. Or what happens if your home is burgled? Thieves aren’t interested in your holiday snaps. They are interested in your iPad, though.

The beauty of physical media is that it’s robust, secure, and perfect for long-term storage. You don’t carry personal data disks in your handbag or briefcase (you shouldn’t anyway). Thieves aren’t interested in your cheap data disks (unless you’re James Bond). You don’t have to worry about access to the internet, either. So, physical media is the best way to back up your digital valuables.
