anyone now anything about DVD writers

DVD RAM is the generic term used to describe writable DVD discs. DVD R means the disc can only be written to once, where as DVD RW means the DISC can be written to many times by being able to erase the data on it.

The only concern at the moment is that there is no standard set as yet regarding the new drives with shorter wavelegths than the drives on the market at the moment. I could be wrong on this though. But this new laser is able to burn allot more data to the DISC because of this, and i would think that if written in one of these drives, you wouldn't be able to read it on the standard drives.

If I was to buy a DVD writer I would get the standard that pioneer use DVD-R (from memory) as they virtually own the DVD market... but in all seriouslness I would wait till a standard is agreed upon first

yeah waiting for a standard is hard, firstly from my research a 'resolution' to the issue seems a way off. The biggest 6 names are split down the middle, plus microsoft know has come out in support of DVD +R/+RW. It seems as though it matters little as long as the player (pc or set top box) can play your written DVDs.

I dont know what was in my head when i posted my first reply, i answered it as if i was thinking of CDR/CDRW...

DVD RAM, -R, -RW, +R, +RW is a new game altogether... And to decide which to go for is almost impossible.

From what i understand, -RW has a max write speed of X1, -R, max of X2.

I think the +R and +RW have slightly less storage capacity.

Now a DVD -RW DISC can only be written to with a DVD -RW drive, as with -R DISCS, and this rule applies to the +R,+RW standard (or lack off). They should be able READ either format however (this i was told).

Apparently because of the lack od standard, SONY has decided to release a DRIVE that will READ/WRITE both DISCS.

The next DVD format (i was told to be called DVD Multi) i've heard will be supported by Microsofts next OS, whether this means it will become the "standard", who nows..
