Re: Burning DVD Backups

If you have the time, always do a double check. Depending on what kind of "verification" you're using, it will actually be able to determine more errors than the md5 check will, so that would be the first line of defense. But when you're dealing with your collections, double-checking is never a bad thing.

By the way, on this topic, might I recommend that you also burn your DVD compilations with some par2 recovery files? I have had a few discs verify OK, then sit on a shelf for a year, only to have read errors on some file later on. Par2 files will ensure that you can recreate any files that potentially get corrupted over time.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
