this was just the opinion of alexnoe,
Most parts if most posts are opinions.
who is a -rw fanatic,
I’m one who realizes that dvd+rw has much fewer advantages than what they state on their FUD page
Could you explain to me how defect management can help reading data which has been destroyed e.g. because of a bad scratch after recording (i.e. a scratch which has not been there before recording).
The error correction data must be the same, otherwise dvd+rw could not be read in any dvd-rom without special support.
You’re welcome to give an in-depth techincal explanation which does not contain FUD such as on this terrible page.
So let’s look at more of the statements on this page.
DVD+RW supports replacing parts of a disc’s contents
For normal data discs, this is possible for DVD-RW with packet writing as well as for DVD+RW. This is not an opinion, but a simple matter of fact.
Who uses rw media to store videos?
DVD+RW system supports both CAV and CLV writing
I don’t know of the new 4x DVD-R media supports CAV writing, so I’ll have to find out.
DVD+RW uses the same discs for data and video applications
What “non-the-same” types of discs does dvd-rw use for vide/data? Their “explanation” does not make any connection to this matter.
DVD+RW system offers Mount Rainier drag-'n-drop support
Not of any use as long as crap software such as InCD :Z must be used in order to use Mt Rainier.
…you can optionally write discs in CAV mode, enabling for much higher performance in data applications
This can only be meant when using packet writing crap…for which no properly working software is available (in normal DAO mode the statement would be crap anyway)
DVD+R/+RW recordings offer a longer recording time than DVD-RW
As they admit later on the page on their own, this is not a DVD-R problem, but a Pioneer fault for one specific model of settop dvd recorders.
Using a PC drive, you use the same encoded mpeg2 data, so the recording time is exactly the same.
The DVD+RW format was a nice idea, but it’s rather useless for a lack of readability in older devices, and stating so much FUD instead of real advantages makes them look rediculously. They would not state FUD instead of real advantages if they knew some.
Again: Unlike these FUD writers from dvdplusrw.org, i don’t want to say that one format is better: I only say that dvd+rw is not better than dvd-rw, nothing more, nothing less.
I wouldn’t recommend the combo drive otherwise
