Am I the only person who finds burning DVDs painful and unreliable? I have had a bunch of DVD burners at home (5?), three of them have died (one even produced smoke when it went....) over time, and I never know when a problem occurs and the burn fails. I have used a variety of burners (HP, IOMEGA, SONY, LG; three external, two internal) and three computers (one custom made, one HP, one IBM) and none have been entirely problem free in terms of burning DVDs. Burning 8 GB disks seems to invite even more problems than 4.7GB. I haven't had read problems on those DVDs which I've successfully burned. But I really don't know what to do about it. Right now I am burning a sequence of files for the fifth time (four failed, booted in between, changed burners ...) Right now the burning is going on at 1x and it takes forever. I mistrust having only hard drives to store my images ... having once lost two of them in one incident ... backup and original. Should I investigate tape drives? Blue-ray?
