>>>>Does anyone archive directly to external hard drives? I have all my 
recordings backed up on several 120-300 gig external hard drives. I keep a
set at my 
sons house in case mine burns down! Is it better to keep things on many,
CDs or DVDs?

My best,

I try to buy as many hard drives as I can John, I find the western digital
to be a reliable drive but yes, I back-up to numerous drives and CD/DVD.

In this day of digital age you can't be too careful. My analogue tapes are
re-digitalized and archived, with over 35 years of recordings one cant be
too cautious.
