Sony DVD burners

Hi All

I was recently going to do a trade with somebody and I said my preference was for DVD-R. Being new to DVD burning I cannot understand the reply I got, well I can, but I would like clarification.

He told me that his Sony internal burner could read DVD-Rs but could not burn them.

Is this correct? if it is then I feel the DVD-R, DVD+R issues that I read about could go on for ages.

Thanks for your time.


It depends which sony burner it is, some sony burners can burn and read both formats.


Model number for the Sony???



I can only ask the person concerned what his drive is…
