I tried a couple of single layer discs and they worked fine for the most part, though one did lock up about 85% through the verify process. So it is the dual layer disc I need to work the bugs out on. I just wanted to get as much info as possible before trying again; they are expensive. When backing up P2, the 50 GB would make it more efficient. I was working on the computer while it was burning in the background, that could be one problem. I wonder if it would work better thru the 1394 port instead of the USB 2 port on my monitor, or better yet a built in Blu Ray recorder. If any one has any insight on these questions or with different media please let me know.
Thanks for the info, BustedFlush
