DVD-R, DVD+R, +-Confusion
Lord. I blink and it got confusing. Noone bother to work it out, so now there's DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, and DVD-RAM.
I HAD a nice Sony DVD*.* Writer but it, like Colonel Sanders, has gone tits up. So, I'm forced to use a friend's DVD writer and lord knows if the DVDs from my Africa trip will run in their DVD players.
So, a litte googling led me to this VERY nice search system at VideoHelp.com. It actually has a list compiled from User Reports describing not only what players will play what media, but also what BRANDS of media had the best success on what drives. Nice.
Here's mine - looks like it's time for a new DVD Player.
