I have a quick question about DVD burning. I have a 4X external TDK DVD Burner that I really love but per TDK that stopped making the 4X +R blank DVD's that I used and I can't find them anywhere on the internet.
I bought a pack of 10 Office Depot 4X +R blank DVD's to try and would like to know how much of a movie do you have to watch to find out if the burn was ok or not. I never had a problem at all with the TDK's. I burned a movie using the Office Depot blank DVD and watched afew minutes of it and it seemed fine.

Since the burns you are doing finish without any error or fail message, I suspect they are ok. If you really want to be "100 percent" sure??? You probably need to watch the whole video. When I get software for my childs use, I make a copy for them and put the original away for backup. Kids are real hard on cd's. Unless I get an error message during the burn, I just assume all is ok. So far, this approach has not failed me.
