Great minds think alike. I did the same and got pretty much the same
response. I've forwarded him my updates but I'll attach it here one
more time.

Some things I've added/fixed:
- Fixed DVD +R capacity (had an extra *2 in it)
- Got subprocess.Popen working
- Added a very basic usage (--help) output.
- Switched from a more procedural approach to capturing the main
portion of the program in a def Main() call and if __name__ ==
'__main__': which should make it easier to wrap a gui around it.
- Starting from disc other than #1. I hit enter too early on a backup
and it exited and I didn't want to burn the first two discs over.
- Got basic command parsing implemented.

Some things I was going to work on:
- assignable disc volume name by command line argument.
