you are saying that YOUR drive in particular burns better on 74 min disks in another post. but 74 min media these days is more expensive and hard to find… so in the long run you are better off buying a new drive (one that is proven to burn well on 80 min media, and this is the place to find out about something like that…).
i was going nuts a few years ago when the 74 min media was getting harder and harder to find, a was mad at the manufacturers, and suppliers, and was shouting at clerks in Best Buys and and Circuit Cities who never really appreciated my concerns.
but hey, 74 min media is HISTORY, and you have to accept it. i learned to do it. i did not like it…
anyway, the 4,7GB DVD will be the 74 min equivalent as soon as the DL media becomes mainstream, so i feel good, since i decided not to jump on this dual layer wagon anytime soon, and it is not because i dont have enough stuff to burn.
