Fantastic machine for recording and editing but, it takes too long to read discs burn't from my PC or Sony DVD camcorder (I need this facility). I can't justify waiting 90 seconds to read a DVD-R and more often than not receiving the fatal "disc damaged or dirty" message even after Toshiba told me to press the "Star" button when this happens. Even discs recorded and finalised on the XS32 take a while to read (30-40 seconds). I can't justify buying a machine just to read discs made on the PC. I will be changing it for a JVC MH20 or Pioneer 520.- The Pioneer is the hot favourite. I just wish I could swap the DVD drive in the Tosh for the Pioneer!.
