Currently there are many different DVD formats on the market (DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-ROM, etc.)
One of the factors that is preventing me from getting a DVD recorder is the lack of convergence of the formats. If I get one now, what happens if a single format is developed that is not backwards compatible with the current DVD recorders?
I need to know whether or not the DVD writing standards has matured yet.
I don’t want to buy a DVD writer and find out two weeks down the road that the industry is switched to DVD-XR!
Does anybody know if a single DVD format is being developed or not?
