Which DVD writer format?

  sihalls 18:42 31 Jul 2003

Just bought a Sony DVD writer which can do pretty much all formats but which do I use? The two main reasons are a) hard drive backup b) putting edited video onto DVD that can be played in the bulk standard household DVD player.

Any suggestions?.......

Do you mean which disc's to use as in + or - ???

i n most forums you will find that - is more compatible with dvd players...but + is catching up.....dont believe the hype about + that plays on all dvd players i tried a + and a - on 14 dvd players - played on 14...+ on 10...same but i do like +rw's better than -rw

I have burnt over 200 dvd-r's about 30 dvd+r's....

Best is to just test your players.....have fun
