Newbie : Which format

vbimport

#1

Hey all,

I've read several posts which were in part helpful and also tried searching the forum trying to find the answer to my question, but I didn't find it, so here's my doubt :

I want to buy a pc DVD recorder and since there are several formats, can any of you please advise which is best compatible with "living-room" DVD players such as Sony DVP-NS700P , Panasonic, LG, etc.

I mean, I'm not sure if any of the formats is compatible with all these, but I'd REALLY appreciate some tips about the more compatible ones especially with Sony. If a given format is compatible with more manufacturer, even better.

p.s. I've read that dvd-r is supposed to be the most generally compatible one...is this true? And the re-writable formats? Which one?

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

1st post here so go easy on me :wink:

Hi.

See this page: http://www.dvdplusrw.org/resources/compatibilitylist_dvdvideo.html

It says both DVD+RW and DVD+R can be read with Sony DVP NS 700P.

One of the most complete database is in VCDHelp.com.

Similar information should be in DVDwriters.co.uk, too.
