just bought a Sylvania DVD -RW burner which is a stand alone.
It came w/ 3 Memorex DVD -RW 2X Discs which all work fine.
Do I NEED to purchase discs which specifically say -RW, or can I get -R and just not have the ability to re-write onto those which say -R?
I bought a spindle of 25 Memorex which say 8X but only say -R. WHen I put them into my burner and a message came up saying “Cannot use Playback mode” and wouldn’t let me ‘format’, or do anything.
So basically what I’m asking is this…
Do I HAVE to get -RW? I got the -R because…they were cheaper, and I was planning on ONLY using the disc once to burn onto and never format/reburn onto it.
Does the SPEED of the media matter?
