Question about dvds

Is it correct that if you want to play DVDs on your home DVD player you have to use DVD Rs and not DVD rws, similar to having to use CD rs and not CD rws for audio CDs on home CD players.

It really depends on the home player itself, and what formats the manufacturer decided to support when it made the particular model.

You should check compatibility of the home player with DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW.

If you have a model in mind, you can check whether it's listed on this site click here

I use dvd rw's all the time,I use dvd shrink to make a backup of the bought dvd, then use the copies for the kids etc as they can be a bit destructive!, only problem I have found is that pc worlds own brand are no good, best to use either imitain or packard bell. If the recording goes wrong or the kids get fed up of the film then I can re-use them.
