Scratch/ loose.... yes, which you have that chance using any type of media, flash drive failure...

But it sounds to me like you the op have already have downloaded win-7 ultimate ?
And just need a activation key ?
Which GregRocker would be on the right track,
I posted Amazon because it showed a win-7 ultimate 64 bit for sell
Fairly reliable place to shop for non-pirated copies,
Cheers.

Nor do I after having left them in their cases without touching them for many years. Ironically, aforementioned Windows XP x64 disc and its copy were in neighboring covers and the former was noticeably struggling to complete an install while the latter was comparable with a USB installation.

I had also thought that my untouched Windows 7 CD would be happy enough to do an install for me an other time down the track only to find that it too was already tuckered out from too much time spent in its protective case.

I haven't even taken my Windows 8 discs out of their cases but I would hate to have to deal with the inconvenience after having installed Windows 8 many times already without them. I think the odds are stacked against them too!

Oh well!

LuzTeTT I want to make sure I understand what you are posting.

Your CD/DVD's are wearing out sitting in a plastic protection case just sitting their not being used??

I have had CD's and DVD's for years in plastic cases without any problems.
Of course you must keep them away from heat or direct sun light and large magnets.
Most of the world use these protective cases and I have never heard of such a problem before.
What other storage method would you recommend.

They don't look worn out but they were definitely acting like it. They were functional but at an obvious diminished speed. As I said, I made a copy of my original XP x64 the day I bought it, and even to this day the copy is considerably better comparatively speaking than the original.

Hogwash.

My downloads and my USB media have stood the test of time. My original Microsoft discs are all slowly wearing. When I initially bought the RTM version of XP x64, I made a copy of it that to this day performs better than the actual disc in terms of both speed and CRC issues.

I didn't even bother after I heard my Windows 7 disc skip once or twice. From now on I'll stick to downloads and alternative storage, thanks!
Hogwash. The iso downloads are often corrupt due to D/L speed, web traffic, server traffic etc. ThrashZone's statement is correct, and I've never heard a DVD skip.
I have an original w7 Student Upgrade disk for 5 years which is still perfect, no "skipping" or the like, works faster than the copy I made. USB sticks are faster though, but can get corrupt laying around as can an optical disk.

Yes MS does allow online keys to be delivered in the US, just not w7 now since they are pushing their other stuff down our throats.

My XP Pro disk still works fine after 10 years or so. In fact all of my installation disks do.

What type of optical media have you found that is in any way affected by magnetic fields (large magnets)?

This can happen and it is called disc rot. You are all correct.

Disc rot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also over the years the laser in the drive reading the disc can wear out getting dimmer and can have trouble reading the discs, so yes Cd's and DVD's wear out sitting in shelves. I have David Bowie - Hunky Dory CD from 20 years ago and the final bonus track is now an unplayable mess and I also have a T Rex CD and the last track on that is a skip mix. No piss taking about the music please, I have a ton of it and it is of every type.
