How do you tell the difference between Tyvek and Paper CD sleeves? I just got some from an online store and they look like ordinary paper sleeves.

try tearing it. Tyvek is virtually untearable. The old 5.25 floppies were made from Tyvek. Try tearing one up with your hands : )

tyvek is the stuff they wrap up houses in to ack as a vapor barrier.. floppies were made from mylar, not tyvek. tyvek is shiny and strong like plastic, and you can see the fibers in it, but it doesn't feel like plastic.. it feels almost like a fabric or paper. you can tell the difference easily though
