if you have a newer '16X' or whatever DVD burner, tell your burning 
software to go no faster than 8X, and your disks will be 100% more reliable

the higher speed modes are 'constant angular velocity', while the 8X 
mode is 'constant linear velocity', and seems to generate far fewer 
errors on the last (outer) part of the disk.    I've found this to be 
true with various model burners and various types of blank media.
