CDs are extremely fragile. The recording layer is on the top of the
platter protected only by a layer of laquer which is easily
contaminated by fingers touching the top surface. A DVD in contrast
has the recording layer sandwiched between two equally thick
polycarbonate platters and so is not subject to the same contamination
as a CD. Otoh you can destroy a burnt DVD by dropping it on its edge
on a hard surface which can cause the 2 platters to delaminate. I'd
expect BlueRay to be at least as reliable as DVD
