    Hi there,

    I have ripped a few of my DVD's to hard disk in the form of VIDEO_TS folders. Id like to burn one of these folders to two disks concurrently obviously with 2 DVD-R burners.

    My question, will i need 2 identical DVD-R burners?

    or is it possible to use different burners but obviously BOTH drives burning at 4x to identical media (TYG01)? I currently have a Pioneer DVR-109 (PATA). This will be set to Master and there is only 1 PATA interface on the board. Since i will have a spare SATA port on the board id like add a SATA Plextor 716SA drive. Would this be feasible?

    Which software will allow me to use VIDEO_TS folders as a source to burn to 2 DVD-R drives?

    Please note i intend ONLY to burn at 4x no more no less.

    Thanks in advance

    Most software manufacturers recommend that you have the same burners & firmware. I have not tried do the process you want, but I do use multiple burners with my Alcohol 120%. I do it on the fly, with good results too. I would not recommend on the fly until you are happy with using the software & processes involved.

    Saying that, although it may not be strictly recommended, I would give it a go. You have nothing to lose. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

    You need to get good media, Ritek, Verbatim are good. I use Traxdata +RW media. I cannot remember the last coaster I had. If you buy cheap media you will get cheap results! Try using RW media too, it will prevent you having to throw bad burns or cockups (!) in the bin!
    I would think that nero could do it for you, I am not sure if alcohol will (I think you need an alcohol compatible file, but I am not sure!!), as I am not at my own pc at this moment in time
