I have to do a presentation for about 10-20 minutes, in which I am to try to explain DVD (& CD) writing and its complex details (what makes a good burn, compatibility, MID and brands, longivity...).
The problem is the audience. We're talking almost complete computer illiterates here. The idea is to make these people aware of what's going on so they don't buy just anything that's on sale and in a year have lost their precious kid's first steps pictures.
Has anyone experience in trying to explain this stuff in the most simple of terms? What should one pay attention to, what should one talk about and what should be skipped?
I'm a bit entrenched in the IT world so talking sense to people who have just learned how to copy paste in Windows is a challenge.
Any tips or links to information would be greatly appreciated.
