    Yeah you can do that. We are in the process of doing this for a guy that has 4,700 slides his father took. Now that’s a lot of slides. Like I said…if you want to buy the hardware, they are called slide scanners. Depends on how many you have though.

    Google for "slide scanner". If you don’t want to purchase expensive hardware we could do it for you. We also run the slides through 3 filters to clean them up.

    I have one but to be honest I have never used the lightscribe. Just haven’t gotten around to it. As far as the quality of the burner…I haven’t had a single problem.

    This may sound a little partial because I’m in the industry of duplication but unless your producing a few thousand a month, it’s probably not cost effective to buy your own equipment. You could get something like a bravo 2 that could print nice but you looking at thousands of dollars. If you want to settle for something of lesser quality you can use the regular printers to print with inkjet on the media. However, cartridges can be expensive.

    Alright let me get a little technical here to answer your question. The reason the answers are so vague is because it depends upon the quality produced. Standard for cheap media you buy at the store is to put a layer of reflective aluminum in between the disc to bounce the laser off to read the peaks and valleys (0s and 1s).

    If you want a long lasting media that wont have a CRC error eventually you are going to need to go with something other than aluminum. It’s going to have to be either silver or gold lining. They can cost a couple bucks a piece but it’s worth it if you want something that’s not going to go bad.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Here is a Chart you can use to look up which one is the right format. Also remember that country codes are another issue. Most DVD players can’t only switch country region setting 5 times or so. There is such a thing as region free players but most people don’t have access to this.

    You need to purchase some authoring software so you can edit or make a new menu system.

    You may want to try burning it at a lowest speed possible. I’m not a fan of phillips products and have noticed they make some of the most picky DVD players around. Any home burned DVD could potentially have problems on certain picky players. It should be nothing with your sound files though.
