DVD Specifiaction

Hello everybody,

to understand recording issues better, I would like to know more about the dvd standard itself. I would like to know how the laser keeps track, which channel coding is used for the two en-/decoders and so on.

Can somebody point me a link where to find this??

That would be great. Thanx in advance,

Thanks Spath, for your answer! That was what I was looking for.

Could anyone move my thread? Sorry for creating it in the wrong folder!!
