Digital preservation

Digital preservation deals with the question of how files can be preserved and kept readable in the long term in view of changing software and hardware. The data carriers are not indefinitely durable, software disappears from the market, files can no longer be opened and notebooks no longer have CD drives - how is that supposed to work? And what do I do with my CDs now
