Well I'm glad you didn't think that question was stupid because here comes another one. I bought deckmate brand #8 1-5/8 in. Star Flat-Head Wood Deck Screws (Home Depot).

Are these good to use? I'm having so much trouble in certain areas getting them to grab effectively to the dimensional lumber subfloor. I'm sure it's because the wood is old and it's on diagonal with gaps in between most boards.

Anyhow two more questions as they relate.
1. Is it ok to leave any holes in the plywood from the screws that don't attach we'll and I remove
2. Since ditra is going over plywood is it ok if some screws are flush with the plywood or do they all have to be recessed.
