    I'm going to take the plunge and try to help you out, Jose...

    You don't mean transcription, I assume, you mean Transfer, which is the changing of the media between film and the disc... and yes there can be a HUGE difference found, depending on the transfer. It's the difference between the Highlander 10th Anniversary and the Immortal Edition released last year... the differences are night and day.

    That having been said, there are no differences between individual discs of a package... like copy 1 and copy 2 of the Highlander Immortal Edition are exactly the same (wasn't sure if you were asking this as well.)

    The Superbit line of DVDs are specially encoded to take full advantage of the DVD format and give the best quality picture they can. Also, you can look around to find various DVDs that present excellent images, such as the recent Lord of the Rings set.

    Hope I answered your question!
