Performed a DVD backup today, and all is well.
I've tested the copy on a short trip, and it all seems in order. I'll keep the original in the car for a short while, in case of any failures, but then it'll go into my cabinet.
I used the following kit:
Nero 7 Premium - DVD copy at safe (slowest) setting. I chose to keep the image rather than delete it.
NEC 4571A DVD Recorder.
Verbatim DVD-R 4x Dual Layer (Nero chose to burn it at 6x for some reason).
Image copy time was around 10 minutes, and the burn time was about 24 minutes.
Edit: Forgot to add that the blank DVD wouldn't initialise when I tried to copy the image to my LiteOn SOHW-1633S burner (apparently it can only burn +R discs). Luckily I had the NEC fitted too.
