I guess I'm getting the pure burning function mixed up with ripping/transcoding. Some of these programs have so many overlapping functions that it's hard for me to tell what does what anymore.
So, can I assume that, after using Recode or DVD Shrink to transcode, CopyToDVD returns to it's own interface to do the actual writing with it's own burning engine and maybe even presents me with some options for burning?
If so, one other question. Should I set my transcoding software to remove the layer break? Will CopyToDVD then re-establish the layer break at the correct point on the DVD-9 DL disc?
I think we all know that the answers to many of our questions come from dedicated people that spend a lot of time and money to experiment with the software/hardware and are willing to share their knowledge with some of the rest of us who have neither the time or the money to make a lot of mistakes. For that, I am grateful. Thanks.
