    Not sure the purpose here. I would think many save work to a jump drive - or somewhere to the cloud.

    And those of us MacHeads probably use the Mac backup software.

    Or maybe this poll is being taken by Fast Eddie of talk radio and TV fame - who is trying to sell us Carbonite :D

    Years. I don't bother ripping to cd anymore. Time Machine for backing up and any quick file transfers I just use a memory card.

    I have a giant spindle of CD-Rs that have just been gathering dust since 2006 (which was the last time I used one at home). For backups I use a couple external hard drives, and for transferring files I just use an 8gb jump drive.

    I will say that I have DVD data backups of my photographs in a safe deposit box (about a dozen DVD's.

    I have to burn CD's with images of my artwork & submit them for art proposals... so maybe 1 every month...


    but other than that, I don't have much use for them anymore.

    You cant just send them in an email, or setup a private flikr account?

    Seems like there are a million less wasteful ways of doing the same thing.

    I agree totally... but I still have some clients that even require slides!... some clients will use a web-based software & will occasionally allow a web link... but in general, it is still CD's... hopefully these will work their way out of the requirement process.

    The last time I used DVDRs. That was two years ago. Now it would take a hundred of those. I prefer using an external hard disk only for that. I plug and fire it up every few months.

    A couple of times a year. My wife and I go on fairly exotic vacations. It is amazing how many people will go to a staggeringly beautiful area with only a couple of GB of flash for their camera. :rolleyes:

    When they run out of memory cards, we'll "save" them by burning their images to CD/DVD. For ourselves, we not only have enough flash storage to never run out, but we carry two USB drives for triple-redundancy.

    Used to use them regular, but not for a long while since I no longer have a need to transport info.
