    I remember reading that direct sunlight is bad for DVDRs. I am assuming this is true. I recieved my blank DVDRs in a large spindle in a clear cylinder. Therefore, sunlight can come through the sides of the clyinder and shine on to the sides of the DVDRs. Is this bad? Should I keep my spindles in a dark place? Thanks.

    I thought this was more of a heat factor rather than UV. UV is pretty good at degrading pigments/dyes however. So, disregard this and take your spindle off of the window sill :P

    So even the little bit of sunlight that gets through the millimeters thick sides of the DVDRs is bad. Interesting. From now on, I will keep my blank DVDRs and CDRs in the shade. Anyone have any first hand experience of sunlight ruining their DVDRs?

    My girlfriend opened my office shade allowing a bunch off my dvds to get a nice dose of afternoon sun. I may,but hope not to have some first hand experience.

    Do you think it's worth getting some sun protection for my spindles? I was thinking maybe keep em under a baseball hat or in a cake box.
