    Backup my photos on CDRW / CDR.

    Moving on to DVD-R/RW and DVD-RAM (Catridge 9.4gb) ... suddenly realised that owning a DSLR ... it eats CF cards for breakfast lunch and dinner

    Hi

    After using a dSLR for the past 4 months, I agree that digital photos really have a feast with CF cards !!!!!

    Just have a few side questions here:

    (1) What software do you use to move/copy the images from the CF card to the harddisk, before burning to the repective media? Is the EXIF preserved? Will the usual Windows Explorer strip off the EXIF when the simple cut-and-paste is done?

    (2) Do you all renumber the photographs from IMG0000<whatever> to something useful and 'swee swee' (eg Italy2004_<number>) ? What software do you use to do this (batch mode)?

    TIA

    hmm. currently using only 2 tier. 1 external hdd and backup to cd. thinking of dvd soon. anyone knows which brand and model of cd-r is currently the most longlasting? Cost is not really a factor.

    Default I have to answer tape but...

    I had to answer tape, but...

    My backup method is really 'use office file server'. It's just that the office fileserver is backed up to tape. LTO tapes, in a large robotic 'silo'.
