Hi all.

I would like to backup a 4GB game on DVD, and I want it to be as useable as possible. My options are: DVD-R or DVD+R @ DVD-ROM. The media will probably be Verbatim based on the CMC/TY codes. BTW, if I have a 5GB game laying around, my only option to backup it is with DL?

THANKS A TON.

Regards. :rolleyes: :bow:

you can probably never make a dvd disc 100% compatible with ALL hardware. i would try dvd-r


#3

i’ve found dvd+r booktyped to dvd-rom to be more compatible with devices than dvd-r.


#4

So what to choose? I guess I should take the cheaper?


#5

Usually -R media is cheaper than +R but there are exceptions. I suggest +R bitset to ROM for maximum compatibility of the game backup.


#6

It depends on what kind of game it is. Are we talking PC, Videogame consoles, ect?


#7

PC ONLY.

Thanks.

Why not just do both?

Because I’m not intersted in wasting discs, I will like to know for sure before I burn. But if you think about it, I can buy 25 DVD+R + 25 DVD-R.
