But even in this case, the remedy, as you know, is very simple. Immediately after receiving a DVD-r, you made a copy on an external hard drive, so if something wrong happens, you can burn an exact clone of the original. I have three 3To external hard-drives so I have "security copies" of any rare stuff in my collection. I rarely encountered problems with a DVD-r, but this sometimes happens, alas.
I remember to have bought an original Dutch DVD (NOT a DVD-r) of "The Legend of Sweeney Todd" (with Ben Kingsley) and the disc was freezing around the 50th minute. Well, I just made a copy, burned it on another disc, and this DVD-r played perfectly on any machine...
