The total sum of my tests to verify DVD burns have been on a different
drive, and have been bit for bit. BUT, I've done this with a total of
two sets of media, so, I might be in for some insights. :) As I move
forward with this effort, I'll update the list as to my success/failure.
Thanks for the heads up Dow.
Hmmmm, wondering if I should install my dvd writer in a box and bring
it to the next meeting... ;)
