That's why you routinely transfer from old medium to new medium every 
5-10 years.

Just last night I dumped 7 CDROMs to .ISO images and stored all of them 
onto a single DVD-ROM; then made a 2nd copy and stored that somewhere 
else.  In five to ten years, I'll transfer the DVD-ROM onto some new medium.
