I just ordered Toast 7 (we have 6, so I'll try that while we wait). Also, I ordered some new brands of DVD's to try, after reading yet more about brand being important. I'm now trying the BeAll's which Meritline says are super compatible, and also the incredibly expensive (relatively speaking) TDK certified DVD-R's (at least $3 EACH), but that claim to be certified to be compatible with ALL DVD players (an impressive claim, but we'll see).
