That's part of my question. Right now I only have a DVD-R recorder, and I think DVD-R is the worst way to go with DVDs.

the best way to store is using redundancy.
Cloud, and you can access it anywhere there's internet
hard copy (DVD, tape, whatever) and you can take it with you where there's not internet
disk drive (not a flash) kept in a safe place
flash (phone, ipad, thumb drive, whatever)

Memory is dirt cheap nowadays. Capitalize on that.

Movies on DVD?

Burn 'em to a hard drive and store the drive carefully? Then duplicate that every few years? Probably the easiest if you have to update the format at some point.

I thought you were talking like 8 mm home movies or something exotic like reel to reel video tape.

Stay away from the cloud storage for movies.... If you own the dvd in a box, store it in a bin, digitize the movie, keep it on local drives.

Hard drive, duplicated on a 2nd hard drive as a backup.

When the first HDD starts to act weird, buy a new one, use the old backup disk as your new primary disk and the new one as the backup.

Rinse, repeat.

Not only good for movies but for all your pictures, songs, and stuff.

This was my solution:







Around 18TB in RAID5

Time for an upgrade soon though. Only about 3TB left

keep a hard copy stored away (you'll probably die before the dvds go bad) and put them on a home theater computer or a simpler yet a popcorn hour box - http://www.popcornhour.com/onlinesto...&mainItemId=55

4 TeraByte (TB) hard drives will work. http://www.networkedmediatank.com/wi....22_SATA_disks
I have over 700 movies (DVD & some 720p Blue Ray) currently at 1.75TB

rip your movies to H.264 .MKV format with
http://www.dvdfab.com/download.htm
others use .avi or .mp4

the popcorn hour connects to a computer via USB and is seen as another drive letter. rip the DVD to the popcorn hour harddrive. when done plug the popcorn hour into the TV and AV system and select movies on the TV screen.

wow. are you saving as uncompressed BlueRay in the 15+ GB range per movie? That is a ton of storage.

i keep my DVDs to aprox 1.5gb and only do Blueray at 720P (Not 1080P) at 2-2.5gb per movie.

when i'm fishing for movies via Torrent (KAT) i look for movies in the same size range too.

No, they are all compressed DVDs. Typically 3-4G each. I have a couple of thousand movies - all my own rips (I don't DL). Plus I have about 1T of music in there. All rips from my own CDs in three different formats (Apple lossless, 320k MP3 and 128k AAC)

But it is getting full so next I'm going to check if the RAID cards will support 2T drives and if so swap out the old 400G array
