    Just wondering, if I create an Disk Image through iDVD, then burn a DVD from that, is the quality identical to if you burn the DVD directly from iDVD? Are there any quality loss?

    nope, there's no quality loss.

    it's just a lot easier to make multiple copies of the disc without needing to open iDVD all the time. i use it all the time.

    I'm willing to bet that the discs will be bit-identical either way--it probably does the same thing even if you burn directly, you just never see the disk image.

    And this is the only way I make discs anymore; aside from the ease of making extra copies, it gives you a buffer if something goes wrong and lets you preview the finished disc before wasting a DVD-R. I've already saved a couple of discs this way.
