For the same reason I don't use CDs anymore--their capacity is 650 MB
vs. 4.7 GB for DVDs. And CD-RWs are even worse--same low capacity but
much higher price and much less reliable in my experience. I used to
keep one or two of them, just to move stuff between computers, but got
too many errors and now use a USB stick for that.
