Formatting DVD-R/RW for Hard Drive Backup Image

  freaky 19:43 11 Jan 2005

I am using Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD for burning, and Acronis True Image 8 for backing up my hard drive.

When I go to format a DVD prior to burning, I get the following options: -

UDF 1.02 ....this is faded out so cannot use.

UDF 1.50 says'Use this format to use only on supported systems'.

UDF 2.00 says 'Use this format for best compatibilty with devices like Camcorder, Video

UDF 2.01 says same as above but adds 'require UDF 2.01

In order to use the DVD's for backing up the hard drive I formatted using UDF 1.50 and all was OK.

Should I also use UDF 1.50 for formatting when it will not be used for data storage e.g. Pictures, Video, and Backing up my DVD's ?
