I don't know what this guy is talking about "disk rot".  They are made of plastic which as we all know, takes forever and a week to decay.  It does have a thin metal film on the label side which is actually where data is stored to it and is pretty sensitive to whatever touches it.  Such as chemicals, dirt, finger prints, sunlight and of course, shoes.  The example shown in this guys video caption is the worse case of abuse I have ever seen.  Where did this guy store that CD?  Under the floor mat of his car?

I've recorded some music CD's well over 14 years ago and they have basically lived in a CD changer in the trunk of my car ever since, and they still play perfectly fine.

 I've had entire folders (dozens of CD's) die of disk rot. I have had some as bad as the thumbnail for that vid. they were all CD\R's, various brands. My guess is they didn't seal them well on the  label side or something plus damper climate. I don't remember ever having it happen with DVD's though.
 And no, the majority of the CD's that rotted out were only made for backup purposes. Burned then put in the folder for storage. Others are probably still fine to this day that I mis/handled  for years. not counting scratches.

In my mom's old car that my niece now has my mom had a music CD's label crack off in tiny pieces.. and it wasn't even that old.

 That sounds like a manufacturing defect, unless the disk got overheated in some way.

I was actually thinking the same thing.

 How is her system since I pretty much rebuilt it (KT)? KT's mom's, rebuilt it about a month ago.

It works now. I tested it myself. She has yet to play anything on it even though I put the CD in that her brother made her.

 Upgraded to a new SSD for the boot drive, cleaned the case, redid thermal paste, replaced the DVD drive(with a working used one), upgraded the ram from 4-6gb, on the SSD did a clean install of 7 followed by an upgrade to 10. plus cleaned up her original install of win 7 so it could be booted to from at bios screen (so Ang could still access any setting she needed).

Classic!  lol.  I've come across so many OEM's lately with cd and dvd drives that just won't work anymore.  Either the laser or the motor that spins the disk is dead.  And the drawer NEVER opens without a helping hand. ::)  I guess its a good thing they have been phased out.  But anyway, the best possible upgrade you could have done was add the SSD.   :tup:

 Yep, usually biggest improvement in a pc is adding a SSD.

Of course it would feel faster.  A regular HDD access speed is around 150 to 200 mbps.  A SSD usually has around 500 to 600 mbps.  Nearly 3 times faster.  And a gen3 nvme is usually between 1200 to 3000 mbps.  Considerably faster still but once you get above 600mbps, you won't notice as much of a speed boost between ssd and nvme.

I seem to have fallen behind in my tech knowledge .. what is a nvme?

Well, the newest drive tech is actually called "M.2" and there are a couple different types. 

First is the M.2 nvme.  Blazing fast and runs on a pci_e 4x lane.

The second is the M.2 ssd.  Thou not as fast as nvme, it's the same tech found in a normal 2.5 ssd.  Just smaller.

They look almost the same and could both physically fit in the same slot.  But notice the nvme has one notch on the connector.  While the ssd has 2 notches.  My computer has the Western Digital Black SN750 1tb M.2 nvme boot drive that boasts 3470 mbps read speed.  And a Western Digital Blue 2tb M.2 ssd games storage drive with 560 mbps read speed.
