Ok, so back when (still do) i first started getting into digital photography, i would shoot only shoot RAW, no matter what. I "archived" my TIFF files (most of them) onto CD-Rs. The rest are onto DVDs. I am going through them again, to re-back them up onto new (and better quality) DVDs, getting rid of the "bad" TiFFs that i WILL NEVER use. Anyways, what a painful process! The CD-Rs are so slow to load and transfer to my computer. Is this normal? or just my computer (i am assuming it is normal...).. anyways, i need to buy a smaller external to just store these on, lol.
