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... ;)
