> How long should a CD be replied upon?

Pressed, or CD-R?  A pressed CD will likely be readable as long as the
drive still works, would be my guess - especially if the CD is kept in
the dark and in an inert atmosphere.  A CD-R is quite a different
story; I wouldn't count on them nearly as long.

How long, that's another question.  A decade, maybe?
