So far the one thing I’ve noticed majorly while burning backup DVD’s is that DVD-R seems to be ultrally picky. While most movies play acceptably in the XBox it seems like stand-alone players (My Allegro (Zenith made unit) ABV341 for instance) seems to have problems playing the DVD-R’s properly.
Now I have a Lite-On 451S@851S and was wondering, since I’m getting some Ritek DVD+R’s hopefully tomorrow) and know I can change the booktype setting with the booktype tool - what book-type setting should I use and will they be more compatible then the DVD-R’s especially with the Lite-On burner? Seems the Lite-on’s don’t like DVD-R’s as well as some burners - of course I could be wrong in that. I know a lot of you folks seem to live by and use +R’s for everything, just wondering if my success rate will be further improved by moving entirely to +R and maybe just saving -R’s for general data and such in the future? Thanks for your thoughts and comments.
