My Blank Media (coming in the mail) - http://www.supermediastore.com/maxell-634081-double-layer-8x-8-5gb-dvd-pius-r-media-25-pack.html
Software I am most familiar with - DVD Decrypter ( but I have had trouble reading some discs before, so I was thinking of trying AnyDVD for these discs)
Goal: Back-up DVD collection onto Blank media
Questions: 1) The blank media write speed is 2.4x but I have heard you can write such discs at 4x?? I care MUCH more about quality of discs than the time it takes (how fast is 2.4x? or 4x for that matter?)
2) After I have finished writing a disc, is there a way to be sure that it works well without watching the entire thing? I have heard of Kprobe, but I don't have lite-on. I just want to know the copy was good before I put the original DVD back in safe keeping.
3) Are the Maxell discs I chose decent? Any experience? What kind of success rate am I looking at?
4) What software do you recommend? As I said, I have only taken ISO image reads of my DVD's before with DVD Decrypter.. So any suggestions would be great.
Thanks a bunch in advance. Really appreciate you taking the time.
