yes, but such recoder (dd cd) will be sooner available and payable then a decent dvd-r(w) (4.9gb standard) then I’d rather prefer this one instead of waiting 3 more years for a dvd-r(w) and another point, every one has a cdplayer (cars,home,pc, etc) so when this 1.3gb cd is compatbible with all this why boterhing about a expensive dvd ? these dd cdrecorders are fast(12x),big, and compatible with current cd standards ! I do not have a dvdaudio-player in my car do you ? :slight_smile:

They way I see it, the discs are not compatible with the current drives. But 1,3 GB sounds nice… DVD writers are to expensive for now.

Yes they are compatible. The data on these disks is just more pushed together. Proper drives should be able to read this when they comply with the standards
