Interesting, what DVD Burner and what burning program?  I suspect a DVD drive 
that has a firmware bug in its handling of burnable CDs.  Probably such a subtle 
thing, QA missed it at the factory, or we're the only kind of setup that 
triggers it.

And we never said Windows was impossible, just no one's every really tried it 
before and reported success.  But you did, since win32 version of 
cdr-whateveritscallednow will do the trick nicely.
