Hi, I'm new (obviously) and here is my quesiton. I did a search on the board - but didn't find anything that really answered these questions: I recently received my epson r200 printer, and I bought hub printable DVD-R's from Imation (that brand always worked well for me). Well, I usually use 4x DVD-R's - but these are 8X dvd's. I have never downloaded a firmware update (had my dvd burner for 2 years) - however, I just found out where to get one - so i'm going to do that right after this post. What I did first, was copy a movie that I had made with a Memorex 4x DVD-r onto one of these blank dvd's - it looked fine - but at the end it got choppy - does this have anything to do with the burn speeds? Are they that much of an issue when it comes to copying? do I have to set the same speed the original was made from? Also, I have 2 Sony DVD-RW's that have no speeds listed on them - what I always do is make the movie to an RW first - and then copy to the DVD-R - will this be an issue now? or am I totally lost? Then, I made an original movie with my dvd authoring software - and it came out great (burned to -R the first time).....and without a firmware upgrade.... I'm very confused here, obviously. any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, and I hope someone can answer these questions.
