    How important is it when I burn a DVD, that I select data verification? I thought the hardware already does that to some degree. Is this just peace of mind then, or is there real merit in validating what you think you just burned? It adds about 50% to the time it takes to burn the DVD, so it's not trivial.

    I just got an error during a write session. The error said "CRC error", so it must already be doing some error checking. I'll leave validation off until/if/when I have a problem.
