I am ignorant. I have both a CD R?W and a DVD R/W drive. I was able to burn DVD R+ of a slideshow with SonicMYDVD that plays on my DVD player to my TV set. I was also able to burn file backups to a R+ DVD using Record Now. Right now I have HP DVD R+ and HP CD R/W media. I do know that you can rewrite to CD R/W but it may be unreliable to write it more than once or twice. I have file backups on R/W CDs but want the larger DVDs for that purpose.
So What is the diffrence between DVD (and perhaps CD) R, R- and R+ ?
I think I understand R?W but even there I may be wrong. I need help with the DVD formats because I don’t know what will work and what won’t on my Sony DVD player to my TV set. I browsed the FAQ but didn’t see this answered there.
I am quite computer competent and have A 3.2G P2, 1G ram with no networking except dialup. We can’t get high speed at this location unless satallite - too expensive.
