Choosen a DVD camcorder that only suppurt -R and -RW can cause me any problems in the future? :frowning: , this camcorder has all that I need except that doesn’t support +R and +RW. Should I buy it.

It’s surely because there is no 8cm dvd+r/RW media available…

You will always run into a few dvd players that don’t like -r or -rw dvd’s. You will also run into dvd players that don’t like +r or +rw. It shouldn’t be a big issue as long as you use quality brand dvd’s. If you run into a standalone that doesn’t like -r, simply copy it to your pc, and rewrite it to a +r.

Thank you very much!!!

Can I copy these kind of mini DVD into a regular DVD+R with any standard software like Nero?


#5

You could surely, if they are not protected.

But try with RW first.


#6

But you don’t mean this with 8cm here

Hehe, missed tha one.
8cm -r/rw is out since a long time now, the + side really slowed it down.

But dvd camcorder manufacturers love and believe in only one format so far…
