I was looking through some Ebay auctions for the PX-712A drive and it sees that someone at Plextor claims that the drive is dual format.
Is dual format and dual layer the same thing? If not, what is the difference?
here’s part of the ad from an ebay auction:
The PX-712A extends Plextor’s family of award-winning dual-format DVD drives into the high-speed realm of 12X recording, said Howard Wing, vice president of sales and
marketing for Plextor. ?It offers the enhanced set of recording tools of our PlexWriter
Premium CD-R/RW drive family, including GigaRec, SecuRec, Q-Check, Silent Mode, and VariRec.
PlexWriter Premium drive users who require user-controllable recording tools now can easily migrate to dual-format DVD recording with the new PX-712A drive and PlexTools Professional software.
what does this all mean? I just bought this drive and got it in the other day
