Best Storage Media for Pics?
 
I'm thinking of scanning all my old pictures onto my computer and want to transfer them to some kind of permanent storage media. Then toss the photo albums.

What is the best media to use so the pictures won't get lost? I need to know type and any other particulars to go buy it.

I would have to recomend storing them on a solid state device such as a flash drive or solid state HDD. They dont have any movable parts and are less likely to go bad. its always wise to back them up on a secondary source in case something happens. you can buy a whole bunch of cheap flash drives and categorize them by year, or subject. If you lose one, you wont lose them all.. Just make sure you back them up.

I agree with Mike. I store all my pics and important info on an external hard drive. I believe it's made by Western Digital.

I agree with Mike as well. Some external HD would be best and a solid state one even better!
