For integrity reasons, when trading, is it best to burn things as data or as video? It is best to burn as data when dealing with audio CDs. CDs require ripping, whereas DVD can simply be copied and pasted to the computer. So is a data DVD the same thing as a video DVD?
Someone’s sending me some stuff and I have no knowledge of the software or media he’s using, so it would probably be best to ask him to make an MD5 file before he burns and then burn them as data right? Can anyone advise me of a simple thing that will allow one to create an MD5 file for a folder? Suggestions for Mac and Windows, cuz I’m not sure what his OS is.
