Aaaaaarrrrgh...

Today is a bad bad day!!!

After waiting for 3 years for my own DVD burner... hubby finally bought me one last November 6. Barely 2 weeks of trial and error in transferring our wedding video from VHS to DVD (which I haven't done successfully)... I decided to consolidate all of our pictures in CDs to DVD... and while transferring data from CD to my harddisk. I just shattered a CD inside my newly purchased LG DVD burner! $60 down the drain...

What are the chances! I read on the internet that this happen once or twice in every 10,000 discs. And it happen to ME! waaaaaah!

BEWARE: If you hear an intense vibrating noise or a bang from your superfast 48X CD-ROM or CD-RW drive, beware: your disc may be shattering.

My punishment for buying cheap CDs! Now my data in the shattered CD are lost forever! :-( And that includes our wedding and honeymoon pictures! huhuhuhu...

Oh my! Don't you have a back up of those precious pics?

I wouldn't how I'd react if the same will happen to me!

Linnor said...

ouch.... kainis... sayang.

Tin said...

oh no.... i would feel the same way if it happens to me (God forbid..)

i keep cd copies and a back up on my external HD.

Hi Darlene, Linnor and Tin,

Once I transfer my pictures/data to CDs, I delete them in my pc... I dont have external HD yet.

But hubby have his own set of back up files, so I am hoping that he had those pics that I lost.

Anyway, I only scan our wedding pics, so I can do it all over again... time consuming nga lang. When we got married kasi di pa naman uso ang digital cameras at pics in cds eh.

Thanks!

So sorry about your lost pix. I would have been so mad too if it hapenned to me. Hopefully your hubby still have them.

I'm sorry to hear about your wedding pictures na nawala from Cd. Buti nalang may picture pa naman sa Album. Scan mo nalang ulit. Yon lang nga time consuming pero di bale.

hi Beth and Agring,

thanks! i found some of our wedding pictures in HD while I was scrapping them 2 months ago... but I still have to re-scan my album.

hubby got me a new dvd burner last night.... yey! hope this doesn't happen again.

Ay sayang naman, wedding scene pa ang nawala. Kaya don't forget to back-up all the time.

Mga importante palang video namin palaging may extra copy baka sakali masira, may isa pang duplicate.

Pero alam mo Jo, I like pictures than video recording.

Vanessa said...

So sorry it happened, Jo! Good thing that they were only scanned pics and not the originals! Paper pics are still the best! (for me anyway!) take care, Jo (& do copies now!)

hi Raquel/Vanessa,

I prefer both, but since we started using digicam, most of my pictures are in the HD/CDs now.

Its different looking at old pictures that are in the photo albums than in the computer.

Thanks!
