CDR vs DVR vs DVR DL question

Postby btiger on Tue May 24, 2005 12:29 pm

It seems that peoples only complained about some DVR disk not working well with their burner and nobody is complaning about CDR disk and I just wonder if this is due to the fact a DVR can pack more in than a CDR and if this is the case does that mean DL DVR will get even more complaints in the future?

At this point, if a device doesn't support CD-R, its junk or VERY old. CD-R discs have been around for about 10 years so support isn't really an issue anymore. Of course, that doesn't excuse poor writing quality which can and will cause compatibility problems.

The DVD writers from Optorite and Plextor can pack more data onto a CDR disc, but they use special technology. Discs burned by the Plextor are sometimes supported by other drives, but the Optorite's are not.

I would hope that we'd see less DL complaints in the future. The technology is no longer "new" so there's no excuse for manufacturers not to support it.
