Single Layer DVDs Dvdr Dvdr

A single layer DVD is 4.7 gigabytes and holds about 940 photos. Use DVDs that can't be erased after you've written to them (that is, don't use any DVD whose name ends in "RW"). DVDs come in two formats: DVD-R and DVD+R. Use the type that's compatible with your PC's DVD drive.

Pro: Write-once DVDs have all the advantages of CDs and then some. They hold almost seven times as many photos as CDs and the overall cost per photo is less than CDs.

Con: Windows Explorer doesn't have an option for saving files to a DVD, so you need another program like Roxio's Easy Media Creator (www.roxio.com; $80) or Nero Ultra (www.nero.com; $80).
