Yes, Doug,  many CDs and DVDs have become 'unreadable'  for a variety of 
reasons....and I have had more than one hard drive die, so  having multiple 
storage solutions (including one 'off site') is a  must!   I can only imagine 
what it would be like for a photographer  to  lose their negatives(files)

I do much the same as you in regards to storing digital  data. I was 
somewhat disheartened to hear recently that DVDs are not  stable.

I print about 300-400  8"x10" per year on an Epson  R2400 pigment inkjet 
printer.  I file the prints in acid free sleeve  protectors in very large 3 
ring binders.   Everything gets printed  on Epson Ultra Premium Glossy for 
purposes of 'filing' these  images.  All my digital files are backed up on two 
additional hard  drives plus DVD. (that's how much I trust those media)
   A lot of the recent work, unfortunately is not  Rollei- captured,  I 
expect to start scanning a large number of my Rollei  negatives next year.
   I printed with wet chemistry off and  on for 40 years. After a back 
injury made it impossible for me to be  bending over trays I was fortunate 
enough find digital printing. As much as I  loved  results of 'wet' work, it's 
nice that I will be able to continue  printing no matter what limitations age 
I've gotten somewhat skilled in Photoshop and find that I  use the same 
mentality as I used in the darkroom. If you know what  good  print should look 
like in wet work,. you will no doubt be able to  create them in digital 
printing as well.
It's not rocket science.
