In the Picasa handbook, on page 18, it says to back up photos to CDs.

 

I have tons of DVD-rs; what is the difference?

The main difference between CD and DVD is capacity. A DVD holds over 4 times as much info as a CD.
Not all computers can write DVDs. That is changing, though. All newer computers can read and write to DVD. If you have them, use them.
