After I burn a dvd...

is it a required step to verify? Mac OSX does it by default, but it takes 20-30 minutes and I could just pop it out and try it a lot quicker. Right..?

It's not a required step.

If the DVD you are burning matters, then it's worth it to allow the verification process to finish, then ALSO pop the DVD into a player and check it's function thoroughly. Both checks are valid and important, at least for discs that matter.

If the DVD you are burning doesn't matter, then you can skip all of this.
