Thanks for your reply.
There are a lot of burners available for around that price. Some with Litescribe, some without. I was surprised to find out just how many there were. Since I don't plan on burning DVDs as a hobby, I figured I'd try to get away with a less expensive drive.
I forgot to mention the Lite On utility. I read that it only works with certain drives, but couldn't find a list of those drives, so that would also be a question I have for someone - does the utility work with this drive?
That depends alot on the standalone unit you will play it on?
Was that meant to be a question? If so, I have no idea. I was hoping that a video burned from VIDEO_TS files would work on most any player. I am under the impression that video burned from other formats may not work on all players, but was hoping to convert those files using ConvertX to DVD and be good to go. If not, no biggie.
I'll buy the +R media. That is what I was wondering.
If someone knows for sure if this drive will do booktyping or if the utility works with this drive, that would be all I need to know before I order.
