Anduin -

Thanks for you reply, actually... I ended up with an iso, but it was
only a couple of gigs instead of ~8GB.  It was working for me with no
problems a couple of months ago.  I upgrade to latest SVN every couple
of weeks, and I've noticed lately that it seems to work less and less.
 I need to eliminate my drive as the problem, but unfortunantly,
nothing in the logs is telling me anything useful.  The even stranger
thing is that it'll stop on it's own in the same spot (unique per
disc), every time I try to run it on a disc.  It doesn't matter if
it's a new disc, or not.  It's not because the disc itself is
scratched or dirty.
