Methodologies for determining extrapolated life expectancy values for optical disk media were investigated at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These investigations showed that the life expectancy values of optical disk media vaiy greatly due to several factors, including the method used to derive the value of the quality parameter (the byte error rate), the areas measured in the disks, the written patterns used and the criteria for data analysis. Vendor's life expectancy claims can be properly assessed by prospective users if standard methods for calculating and reporting extrapolated life expectancy values are implemented.
