As I said, standalone recorders have a nasty habit of being not quite
compliant with the standard. Different devices - DVD-ROM applications
and set-top boxes - are differently sensitive to that and may refuse to
read, read incorrectly or read the wrong track. Fortunately, DVDShrink
is quite tolerant of TOC faults and builds a new one as needed.
As far as I can determine, the Panasonic recorder is compliant, but for
safety's sake, I use DVDShrink which I know makes a good directory. In
effect, that creates the master. I may then copy it in the computer or
the standalone duplicator or if I know more copies will be needed, I
usually use the files left by DVDShrink to make the additional copies
(two at a time with Nero).
