Th only problem is that a burnt DVD DOES weigh less...

Yes, 1GB weighs approximately 100 grams. So a 2TB HDD should be around 20 tons when full. That is if I did the maths correctly.

Since the DVD is "burnt" by scoring the conversion of mass law is brought into play.The weight is the same.The DVD weight question is asked and answered here.

But full, no writing, and empty, no writing, should be the same.

No. when a DVD is burnt bits are lasered off it.

It seems to be truly accurate (and who would want any less) it should be established if the DVD is commerically burnt or home burnt.
If you read the article Compact disc, you will see that for recordable CDs, their surfaces are coated with a substance whose properties may be altered by heat or light. None of the substance is lost or gained. Its properties merely change through the application of energy. (After edit conflict: Jfarber may be right about burning plastic. But you would not be making grooves with your home computer. CDs with grooves (beneath the plastic) would be made in a special manufacturing facility

It has no mass, however it can cause weight.

If mass A and mass B are in the same environment they will weigh the same. Weight is mass x gravity (or something like that) but it can be affected by putting it in something like water. Lets say mass A is magnetized and mass B isn't then if they are in the same environment they will both weigh the same.
