I have some questions:
When will DVD burners (any) begin to really get up to speed? I don’t plan to buy one until at least 8 - 16x ones and their blank discs are common. I’m mainly only looking for something that can do DVD-R and maybe DVD-RAM. I’ll stick to Plextor for my CD needs. So, can anyone give an estimate of when 8 or 16x DVD burners will be released, and when they’ll be common and as cheap as todays 2 - 4x models?
Can I use DVD-RAM like I would a floppy disk or HDD? My main interest in this format is its durability (it’s in a cartridge, like a minidisc) and because I heard that it can be used like an HDD.
Does any DVD copying software like CloneDVD and the like copy a DVD completely 1:1? I heard of DVDs being bigger that 4.36 or so GB. Are these the multi-layered/multi-sided DVDs? If so, can a multi-layered disc be burned onto a single DVD-R without any quality loss? For multi-sided DVDs, I guess side 2 can easily be put on a second DVD-R, right?
Thanks for any answers on these questions…
