What is the best way to store my pictures? I heard cd's don't last as long as DVD's and memory cards are only good for 10 years?

An external hard drive is your best option! you can save the images at there best quality. You can pick them up pretty cheap now 1TB for aroun $100 (not the best brand though)

We have an external hard drive that we use until we can burn them to a CD. We usually make 2 copies of each CD, just in case of a fire or anything so we still have them all! I have also heard that there are many websites that you can upload your photos to, and they will be there for a long time! Hope it helps!

I've been using a file server which was doing well for 5 years but the issue of always having to use a router as a go between for my pc just slowed down opening and browsing time. I would recommend a terrabyte hard drive so that you can just plug the usb and go. With issues with my file server I'm currently worried that my last 10 years of pictures might be gone and I will never again have all of my pictures in one place. Picasa Web Albums (made by google) are an awesome source to upload pics and video to with affordable additional space. Not to mention sharing with friends and family is a snap and if you ever needed to one click download all button is awesome!

PreserveMyPictures.com takes all your photographs, negatives and slides and creates professional high quality digital images on CD/DVD that last quite a while under adequate storage guidelines. Create a second copy for the safety deposit box are firesafe and if/when any new media becomes available the transition is easy. The memory DVDs make great gifts too. Enjoy!

We had an external hard drive that we back up all of our pictures to, then we also burn them to a disk for extra back up.
