I had been giving out a lot of demos for my projects on CD-R (burned with
Nero and Plextor) and have gotten a couple e-mails that some skipped etc
who knows if it was the burner or reader that was at fault ... I just send
them a new one. Most people don't even know or care that the packing isn't
totally pro, but I do print up nice labels and inserts.
On a side note, there is one brand of CD labels that has a tendency to get
stuck in car CD players since it's surface is slick ... Fellowes Quality
Matte finish ... great for print quality, but I stay away from those now.

Check these links for some general numbers ...
They are claiming 200+ years ... although I have heard of people who live
near the ocean having CDs fall to pieces after only 10 years.
