No such thing as a stupid question. There are, however, some stupid answers.

You may need to reassemble your project, starting fresh.

Have you trashed your DVD SP Prefs?

i didn't think i did..

what's weird is i have always done every burn with the output device selected as the optiarc dvd rw ad-5630a
with lossless linking not switching to the hard drive like your link suggests..
for destination output device

that makes it sound like i am burning to the hard drive and not to the dvd..
is that correct?

If you want a Disk Image then yes, you select the Hard drive.

Your Prefs must live on your boot drive.
