I TiVo'ed the seven part John Adams series recently broadcast on HBO. I wanted to save them to DVD, and since most of them were over an hour, set about making 7 DVDs. Episodes 1,2 and 3 copied fine. Episode 4 failed to copy. I tried another disk. It became a coaster too. I moved forward and episodes 5, 6 and 7 all successfully copied. I went back to episode 4, but that only produced 2 more coasters at what I assume was the same point in the process - and this time I was watching the "minutes to go" countdown. Coaster number 3 I saw reach 13 minutes, then failed. Number 4 counted down from 13 to 12, getting me excited, then bumped back to 13 and promptly failed, and the fan started blowing hard, and stayed that way until I ejected the disk. I surmise that there's some content glitch in the Episode 4 program. I viewed the program, mostly fast-forwarding through the content, but saw nothing unusual. I've copied the program to my computer hard drive and I'll try the methods described elsewhere to make a disk. But bottom line, it wasn't the drive, and almost certainly wasn't the disks. Is anyone else in the same boat?
