23 Interesting, what DVD Burner and what burning program? I suspect a DVD drive
24 that has a firmware bug in its handling of burnable CDs. Probably such a subtle
25 thing, QA missed it at the factory, or we're the only kind of setup that
26 triggers it.
28 And we never said Windows was impossible, just no one's every really tried it
29 before and reported success. But you did, since win32 version of
30 cdr-whateveritscallednow will do the trick nicely.
