I recently ordered an NEC ND-2500A DVD±RW drive and I must say that I love it. I would like to get a dual layer disc so that I can test if the flash upgrade I did added support for such discs but I have not found any single discs in stores yet; it should work but I don't have any way to test it at the moment. In the mean time, I have five DVD+RWs and am using them to decide how I want to use blank DVDs. Just burning 4.7GB to a disc is simple enough but I also want to be able to compose DVDs that will work in a stand alone player. This task is not so simple. Just doing it by hand with dvdauthor sounds like the best bet. It also sounds like a lot of fun. The only problem is I am going to have to learn how to use Cinelerra to cut up the videos I want to use as menu items and such. But, being able to just burn a so much data to one disc is worth the price.
I also have a question for the audience today: What do you think of my intermittent CD reviews? Do you find them helpful?
