Ok, so I finally gave in and bought a DVD burner. I don’t really need one, since the only reason I’ll really burn DVD’s is to give stuff to other people, or the once-in-a-year-maybe burn a video to DVD to watch on the television. I was bored, and needed a new toy, so I thought for $79 it wouldn’t be a bad upgrade to the linux machine. It’s a black-faced Pioneer DVR-110D, and it seems to only burn at 2x in K3b but I think that’s a settings issue.
Hopefully I’ll be able to fix it - on the rare occasion I actually burn something, I don’t want to have to wait the twenty-something minutes I had to wait tonight when I burnt some car vids to test it.
I also got a good deal on a pack of 50 Ritek blanks, $30 bucks - they are A-Grade white-top discs, and they are a pretty good brand from what I’ve heard.
