Writing modes

Hi, If a full data CD was written in TAO mode that contains 1 track of 700 MB of data for instance the laser still goes off and on at the end of that track ? or in th at case it writes continuously like in DAO mode ?
And the second question: if a DVD writer supports Dual layer writing that automatically means that the same media type that is not Dual Layer is supported, for instance if writes DVD+R DL it writes DVD+R too . . ., no ?

  1. There is a difference between Data and Audio content. For Data only TAO or DAO is good. For audio only I would prefer DAO. Multisession/MixedMode CDs are another area.
    What do you mean by “laser still goes off and on at the end”???
    FIRST the LEAD-IN has to be written, then the data and then the LEAD-OUT/Finalization.
  2. True for MEDIATYPE. A DVD+R DL burner supports DVD+R DL aswell as DVD+R of course.

I mean that when you write in TAO mode multiple tracks the laser turns off and on after every track written (creating the run-in, run-out sectors, link sectors). But if you write only one big track to a data CD then the laster still goes on and off ? because after that track the writer do not write any tracks

Nope, TAO only has gaps between tracks.

and if a writer supports SAO writing mode that means that supports DAO too, no ? because in SAO mode are written multiple tracks at once

@ kantorovics,

Perhaps the below WikiPedia article will answer your questions ->

If the above WikiPedia article lacks sufficient information suggest using either Google Search (http://www.google.com) and/or WikiPedia Search (http://en.wikipedia.org).

No, in general not true.
