Was looking to see if there is any new word on release dates for blue ray recorders, and or dual layered dvd-r.


#2

nothing newer than they are planned to come out mid 04, and phillips is the only company that has given any dates and specs
They say july 04
2.4x dual layer writing,
8x (or 4x cant remember) single layer,
Will only write to dvd+r and dvd+r d/l

I will wait for a drive that supports both formats and burns dual layers at 4x or greater.

google it for exact details

probably the end of the year is my guess for all this

I hope its a pioneer!

True, True

I know they have money invested in DvD-R. And they hope it prevails.

I personally like dvd-r better, but whatever

me i’m stucked with dvd+r with the way liteon handles dvd-r media…

in anycase it gets the job done… but i think the standard will simply be dvd±r… since we are seeing a lot of drives doing + and -, but if the decision will based on the number who backs a particular format… i think there are more dvd+r supporters than dvd-r…

Even though I want DvD-R to prevail, my gut feeling is that +R will come ahead in the end.

It has to much backing
