i think the general consensus is older players prefer dvd-r and it would seem the most compatible with standalone players. Newer standalone players can play mostly anything. It's all down to player compatinility. A double layer writer is no better as making compatible copies than a standard writer.

  jonnytub 10:10 13 Aug 2004

I would tactfully say put the Film in and turn the DVD on and read the Licence at the Beginning of the Film
