Default CD Backup Photos

Hi!
I have almost 2 Gb of digital pictures I shot with my Olympus C-750 camera and I want to do some backups!
I need to know how is the best way to do it... (of course I'm not going to print it all!).
I'm thinking about burning some CD but I don't know if the Brand matters, format of recording (use Nero Burning Rom soft and own a plextor 52x24x52A IDE burner).
I want to have my photos intact in a few years, so... No CDs wasted and pictures lost!
Should I burn it on ACDSee software? is it any good?
Love Andrea

Here's a portable CD burner scheduled for release around the end of the year.

Actualy from what I know there are few things you can do (not lot)

1-use good brand medias and not cheep one (TDK-Sony-Kodac etc)
I personaly use Kodac Gold (with a protection leyer) for my important data.

2-Burn the CD at lower speed (8x 16x) so it would be read by all media correctly.

3-Once you have burned an important CD protect it from sunlight, humidity etc etc (better even put it in a box somewere safe)

I personaly use Nero and find it to be a very good and reliable software (at least I trust it more then ACDsee)

Also as I have a DVD R-W I burn my pics to a DVD media so I can have 4.7GIG on the same CD and they can be played on a DVD player (so u can have slide show on tv)

Now, I am looking forward to get tips if there are any, as not only my pictures, but I have vital software and data that I want to make sure I will not loose!

Thanks for you reply!
I feel the same about my pictures and some important docs I have!
Specially for picts, that I can't shot the same pict twice, I want to protect it with my life!
I'll buy some good CD and burn as You said. Should I brun it as Disk at once?
What do you think of ACDsee to organize your picts (even the ones burned on CD only)?
Love,
Andrea

Yes you could! But actualy I wonder why you would want to?
Using disk at once is normaly for multitrack burning. So to put 700MB of pictures on a cd this is not needed!

Recording in disk-at-once mode writes the complete disc, i.e. lead-in, one or more tracks and lead-out, in a single step. The commonly used track-at-once (TAO) mode writes each track independently which requires link blocks between two tracks.


For about ACDsee,
I actualy use this program myself and like it.
Its easy to use and dose a good job.
But I still don't recomend it for burning. Nero dose the job much better
