CD Burning Issue, bitrot?

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 with Nero, BurnAware --

I primarily use CD disc burning for audio files, mostly flac and mp3.

I limit my burning to one session disc-at-a-time and test all content for playability before putting the disc away.  Content always below disc capacity.

Yet returning to the disc (usually months) I periodically find some files not playable, along with being unable to read them via Windows Explorer (i.e., can't copy from the CD).  

Anyone know what's happening?  Is this bitrot?  Am I better off archiving on a flash drive?

Thanks all.
