Finally, I can record DVDs containing those big files that I have on my new Pioneer DVD-108 (black; priced at ~89 USD). I have some questions regarding what discs to buy. I bought some 4x ‘SKY’ DVD-R media from www.yesbuy.net a few days ago. They haven’t arrived yet, but I was wondering how their performance is. I heard something about DVD+R media being more compatible with older drives and DVD-Video players due to the booktype being able to be switched to DVD-ROM or something. Is this true? I thought DVD-R is the most compatible simply because it’s been around since 1998 and DVD+R has been around since 2002. If this is not true, let me know. I don’t want to buy, say, 100 DVD-Rs, and find out they work on nothing but what recorded them.
Does anyone have any experience recording on a Pioneer DVR-108 (AKA Pioneer A-08XLB)? If so, what media best works for you, compatibility-wise? Which is more likely to work in that older OEM 1999 DVD-ROM drive, 1998 home DVD player, PlayStation 2, or X-Box? Thanks.
