A couple of seeks ago I actually had one of those type of errors in a title that i had copyied to a -RAM for temporary storage. (There was a very old thread on this forum with the title of something like "EVIL BITS" describing the phenomenon, so it's been going on for many years.) The corrupt part of the title I had copied was in a ten second static image! Really, a static image, and it was undetectable by just watching. Luckily, I was able to cut the offending part out without disturbing the rest of the recording. It is irritating though, and as jjeff has said, ocasional cleaning is important, ESPECIALLY with brand new -RAM disks. I think they come from manufacturing with a very thin coat of lubrication that scatters the laser light.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
