Just a couple of Notes so you guys don't waste as many blanks as I did
Disc 1 has 3 episodes, ripped to files using AnyDVD and CloneDVD (latest vers), burned and looked great.
Disc 2 has 4 episodes. Same process as above, would not burn. Gave me a "bad media" (paraphrase) error. Tried again, same thing. Made .iso with clonedvd, tried to burn same error. Tried with TDK's and Legacy DVD-R's that I got off newegg.
Ripped to files with 2 episodes, worked great, burned fast, plays and looks great. Ditto for next two episodes using the legacys.
The only issues I've ever had with Clonedvd and Anydvd are with the "episodics" dvds, never have a problem with any movies. I'm thinking it's a size issue(?) with transcoding and clonedvd.
Hardware is a Sony-dru500a (latest fw), media was as mentioned above. Running WXPpro sp1 with latest updates.
