  1. For long term storage M Disc's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M-DISC) tend to be recommended, internal or external doesn't really matter its all up to choice.

    If you want to burn M-DISCS you need a M-DISC compatible burner.
    Also note M-Discs are not rewriteable.

    Would love to mate, but whoever does it is most likely going to use Google Search (products & reviews) - - may be you wouldn't object to doing that so we can carry on helping others?
