I spent the last couple weeks of '05 working on these discs. I sent them out to most of the people that have helped with my projects and some other friends as well.

If you didn't get one and could like one, then let me know... we can probably work something out.
I just don't want to promise because they are kinda expensive... a couple bucks each can add up fast.

Note: These are totally free!! my new year's gifts to you.

PROBLEM: Something went wrong at some point in the burning process, and from what I have figured out (its kinda hard to get what's really going on), something went wrong with the second half of the discs. So... some, maybe even all, of you will get defective discs. Really sorry about that. I plan to replace them, time and money permitting.
First, though, I need to figure out what's wrong.
So... if your disc WORKS, let me know and let me know how... computer? dvd player? etc.
If it doesn't, then let me know why. When did it stop? Did it load then skip? What  player? Etc.

This'll really help me figure it out.

Right now I think its my burner, but I really can't tell... the discs that I have tested in full have worked fine here. But the ones people have recieved already have had problems. I didn't test them all, but I figured the couple I checked would mean that at least most of them were ok.

Its kinda weird.

NOTE: Though it isn't all at the moment, I plan to put everything on the DVD on the internet as well, though it won't be at the same quality level, obviously.

I figure I might as well include a list of who I sent them to so that you know if you were supposed to get one and didn't and can request one if you're not on the list. BTW, I included people who I either had addresses for or spoke to about it. Nothing personal if I didn't send you one. Let me know if you're interested (as I said above.)
In no particular order: ("NR" means not registered here.)
anjofilm, mrdodobird, darth_brad, cramerBH, justinz, yodaman, obijuan2080, FCRabbath, JohnMoore, durbnpoisn, Brent Smith (NR), rogue09, David Jones (NR), mackan (andersson), no1jedi, douglas branson (exit4music here), ellbobin, M. Joel (*Please share with Jedimastermonkey), Michael Dommes (NR), peter busboom (NR), Mike Florio (NR), JCAZmusic (or studio_padank), starwalker, and friends/family

So... who got them? Do they work (see above)?

Thanks for watching, encouraging, and especially for your work on the projects. You guys are awesome!!

Anyone who sends a DVD this well produced FOR FREE can be nothing but ungodly awsome. This was the biggest surprise so far of the new year. Everyone give a cheer for Daniel!

Ian just sent me a PM saying he got it and liked it, implying that it did play.

You (yodaman) have had the problems I've seen already.


Help me figure it out, guys! Smiley

More problems. 3 more discs don't play. More have arrived, not sure about those.

I took my computer to the mac store and they say I need a new burner.

My parents said they'd get one for me for
y birthday.

So.... yep.

I got mine!  It was almost as good as Christmas, getting something all official in the mail from 'Creative Imaginations'.  I was wondering what I bought for a minute...

Then I realized where I'd heard the name 'Creative Imaginations' before.

Thanks a bunch, and I'll watch it shortly.

Seems like my DVD player just happens to be able to get around the problems with this. I tested this more at my grandparents' house and my portable player. Didn't work fully on either from a disc that worked fully on my home player.
So.... gotta redo them once I get a new burner. End of story...

Well, I got mine, and it was working okay for a little while.  Then it crapped out on me.

It's probably a result of the million little scratches all over the disc.  Would that have been the burner?

Million scratches? The burner wasn't scratching them. Maybe it was accidentally placed on something bad. I dunno.
Anyway.... yeah.

try cleaning it, maybe... i dunno.

It may not work great anyway, though Tongue

starwalker, it has been sent, btw. just a matter of time, I guess...
