[B]geno[/B], [B]Kerry[/B] and [B]maineman[/B], thanks for your time and trouble. [B]geno[/B], you use [B]ImgBurn[/B] both for reading the ISO to a folder on your drive and again to burn that ISO to disk?
Forgive my ignorance, but using dual layer media commits me to the purchase of a dual layer DVD burner, does it not? And to follow up - is there a manufacturer whose dual layer burners are far and away the best built? For over [I]ten[/I] years I’ve been a [B]Plextor[/B] freak, but three years back I was convinced by the people who built my computer to go with a SONY DVD RW DW-U14A. It’s been OK but seems to have a distinct affinity for TDK DVD-R media.
Sorry for [I]topic-wandering[/I] but I just succeeded (an hour ago) with [B]AnyDVD[/B] and [B]CloneDVD2[/B]. Messing with the settings on CloneDVD2 I was able to preserve chapters and menus on the second as well as first DVD-5 target disk. Thankfully. the quality is fantastic. The video is gorgeous and the audio is indiscernible from my DVD-9 source: a 5.1 Dolby Digital stream.
But you know what? I’m lazy. When I get into movies or operas or concerts, I really get into them and I don’t want to move, not even to switch the disks. I’d [I]truly[/I] love to have it all on a [I]single[/I] disk. I honestly didn’t know that I could. Again, any thoughts on [B]dual-layer burners[/B]? I’d sacrifice speed, features and just about anything else for fidelity to the source.
