It is always important to store disks and materials in a suitable environment.

(1) The produced CD's conform to the 'Red book standard adopted' by makers of CD players. However, very occasionally, a CD player is found which cannot play CD's although in every case so far investigated the player was either very old and designed before the standard was adopted, or is in poor condition and has trouble playing other CD's.
