What determines which format of DVD is to be used? Is it the DVD drive or the burning program?
My Compaq machine booklet says to use DVD+R DL. Will just DVD+R work, they are a lot cheaper?
Running Vista.

It's whatever the drive was made to work with, usually DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM and the DL (dual-layer) versions of the media. What's the make and model of the drive?

Will depend on what your optical device supports...

Sorry adout that, the name is correct. What I was typing was that the program eedcam suggests says that it reads and writes numerous formats one of which -R I know it can't.

I beg your pardon eedcam. It does support at least 2 of the formats suggested by your program, CD-R and DVD+RW.

I found out that if I open the device tray by pressing the button I'm told the disk is not in place or is inaccessible. If I go into COMPUTER and right click on the DVD/CD device then click on OPEN it works!
