There were two reasons I wasn't exlaining very well: first, I didn't understand everything clearly (which is why I sought to better understand the scope of the problem), and second, because all my testing lead to nothing but inconsistency. The size of the problem swelled to every DVD I owned, which may have caused me to be frustrated.
Forums are very unique and interesting places in terms of established patterns for treating noobs, protocol, etc.. I was in some ways grateful; e.g., I was given no shortage of related ideas. Looking back, maybe my expecations were not bore out, although I thought they were at the time. No hard feelings. I've since decided to pursure this matter by other means. When I want to know the latest and greatest in the DVD/CD world (what seems to be the emphasis here,) I'll return. That's valuable, but it's not what I'm after right now. Thanks, and I hope Spidey met your expectations, although I understand that movie wasn't so simple, either.
