What does this actually do? If I burn a DVD I tend to burn at the slowest speed and verify it. What happens when an error comes up during verify? Does that mean that it wont play back correctly on TV and I have to burn again?
Verification is essential when burning data and/or software. Any errors could be catastrophic.
I't not so essential on audio/video, as a few random errors probably won't even notice.
Verification is not fickle - it compares what's read from the copy with the source. Bur as above, errors in audio/video, whilst they may be there, don't necessarily ruin the payback.
I burn all my stuff at top speed (but it's an elderlyish writer, so top speed is 4x for DVD and 16x for CD. The only trouble I've had was with some very old unbranded DVD blanks. Bought some new ones and all is AOK again. CDs I never have and never have had problems with.
