Up until a few days ago I backed up all of my movies onto DVD-R. (Incidently I have never tried DVD +R media)
I had a Pioneer 106 and have been extremely happy with it....don't think in a couple of hundred burns that I had more than a few coasters...and I think this was due to crap media like laser and princo.
A few weeks ago I backed up a movie and then went to a friends house but the DVD wouldn't work. They had a Phillips DVD player.....but it works on an Onokyo Player, a Singer player and on a Toshiba Player that I have tried.
I have never worried about compatability before as this is the first time I have had a problem.
I have now purchased an NEC 3520A and I have read about booktype and bitsetting...
As I have only ever used DVD-R media, how do I change it so that this media will play in any player.....or do i need DVD+R media...
Thanks in advance
