About three years ago when I was researching into all this stuff we had first generation burners and read many times that the plus format is better for data and minus for video. As I buy in bulk I was wondering has the plus format more or less advanced so that it can be used for video in DVD-ROM drives and DVD players? There is bit setting I know, which helps to increase some compatibility with (usally) older DVD drives.
I’ve considered the following media:
Verbatim DVD+R x16 speed (MCC 004)
Verbatim DVD-R x16 speed (MCC 03RG20)
Taiyo Yuden DVD-R x16 speed
(…and Taiyo Yuden CD x48 speed)
I’m just interested in the compatibility of plus format DVDs as much may have changed since I last read up on the matter, I hope it has. From what I’ve read recently Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden seem to be regarded by many as the best two makes of blank DVDs (and TY for blank CDs) so I hope this helps out with things. I just don’t wish to needing to buy more of one format and having too many of the other kinda thing… I have also been reading up on much discussed DVD burners should that have any bearing too, such as the LG 4163 (or the 4165 when it’s released) and the DVR-109 etc.
Has anyone used DVD+Rs to burn films and then played them on DVD players and DVD-ROM drives etc?
All help greatfully appreciated.
