Re: OT; DVD movie discs??????

I don't even know if my computer could handle that -- it is six years old. I'll have to study this a bit.

Seems to me, my need is to make discs that anyone can play on whatever equipment they have, so long as it is DVD equipment. Don't commercially mass produced discs do that? Is this not possible with home recorded discs?

Re: OT; DVD movie discs??????

Most home discs do. Like I said, being rewriteable (that's the RW discs) makes them distinctly different from commercial discs. The other factor that plays in, though not nearly as much with modern equipment, is that commercial discs are stamped whereas homemade discs are equally "burned" such that the high and low spots are made in a special ink rather than physically imprinted on the media. I don't know that that's such a problem with the newer players out there, but that was one of the big hang ups with older stuff. It just wasn't sensitive enough. It was a fine line between being sensitive enough to play burned discs and not being so sensitive that the smallest imperfection (read: scratch) would make the disc unplayable.

Re: OT; DVD movie discs??????

Well, I'm having more trouble with the +Rs than the +RWs.

I did not know that the technology is so different between commercial and home made discs.

What you tell me would seem to explain why I have people report "dirt on disc" with brand new sparkling clean discs. This home burning technology would seem to be just flat inadequate. Could I expect better results with a more expensive recorder?

Hey, it's way past midnight, and that's here on the West Coast. Let's get some shut eye!

Is that the future of home-recorded films -- playing them thru PCs instead of dedicated equipment? Was there never a standard established for DVD home movies? I wouldn't be surprised.
we are already there, it will be getting more popular as lcdtv prices drop. esspecially as the web stays an entertainment value, nothing like hopping on line with a 42 inch tv as a monitor to show your friends a youtube video or the skoolie site for ideas.

nah home dvds were never standardized, but it really is down to the player more then anything else.

I always had reading problems with burned DVD+R on older player and on those cheaper 29$ DVD player. What I did realize is that burned DVD-R are more compatibles than DVD+R and plays on about any players, newer, older, cheap or expensive. I think that if you want to buy a new dvd recorder, you better pick one that support DVD-R recording.
