Subject: Re: DVD as output of datastep or proc append
...what also might be a problem: after a APPEND the dataset header has to
be updated (NOBS, FORMATS, ....). Don't know if that is working with a RW-
DVD. With a rewritable that should work.
I also think that the driver does not accept a "normal" RW DVD. It should
be rewritable. Its very far away, cause I stopped my trials with
rewritable CD's many years ago, cause the quality, performance and data
security was too bad. Also all the different drivers were not compatible
and changing a drive, also with the same driver didn't work. Perhaps that
is better today, but I don't try any more.
