Burning DVD-R in DVDFab Platinum

I note in DVDFab Platinum, I’ve a choice of using Packet Writing or SAQ Writing when burning DVD-R’s. What’s the difference between the two? Which one should I use if I want the finished disc playable on a regular DVD player? Thanks for any help.

Hi bht and welcome to cdfreaks,

[B]SAO[/B] is preferred with -R media. I say this because many users run into problems with -R and [B]packet writing [/B]and when they switch to [B]SAO[/B], their burning problems disappear.

Both work well for me with +R and -R. Personally, I have mine configured to [B]SAO[/B]

I use mainly DVD+, but have never had any problems with DVD-. DVD- is an older format than DVD+.
