I can't speak to the reliability of mini CDRs, but I can say that
it seems like a whole lot less trouble to have a directory structure
on a file server that's navigable by manufacturer and model number.
I maintain about 26GB of documentation that way. I don't keep
drivers or control software in there, but I could. Doing it the CDR
way seems to me like it'd be more trouble than it's worth.
Just a thought, no offense intended of course.
