Bo Tech: Problem with CDs burnt on PC (49) RE: Tech: Problem with CDs burnt on PC 09 Mar 11

On a slightly aside issue, I dived into my CD collection over the weekend to demonstrate to a non folkie some really good song writing. I found a copy of Hugh and Tony Williams "Requests" from 1998 and tried it on every device I could find. Nothing worked. I even removed the 'stick on' label they had used but it made no difference, it is unplayable and shows as either 'no disc' or 'disc error' on all devices including the car systems.
Would this indicate that CDs have a limited life. It used to play perfectly and I have found a cassette copy made many years ago and I will turn it into a CD.when I have a spare hour.
