    DV-Tapes are also a cool way to store date.

    I started using them, but I found that even with some care it is a little too easy to degrade the quality of the mini CD-RWs to the point where reading and writing is uncertain. I then went and bought a ‘Pendrive’ (USB mass storage device – about the size of a Tipex pen). While a lot more expensive (128MB cost me £100.00) it has been really great to use – and has worked everywhere I have wanted it to.

    You might think that the mini CD has more coverage (you can read it on more computers since CD drives have been around longer than USB), but I have found that only newer drives read the mini CD-RWs (drives that came out about the same time as USB), and there are even fewer drives that actually write these, compared to the number of computers with USB ports now.
