JVC 2x DVD-RWDL media

Postby dolphinius_rex on Tue Jul 31, 2007 12:26 pm

Well, one site is finally listing them:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/4 ... table.html

They don't have them in stock yet, but at least we know the pricing is ~$10 a disc. Absolutely brutal price for a media type that we don't have any drives that can record to it, or any idea of how many drives will be able to read it back though.

If any of my drives were able to use this, I'd pay 10 bucks for one to play with- it is reusable, after all!

Yeah, I would too.... I'm crazy like that. But I don't even know of any drives officially announced that will support the format.

I probably wouldn't even bother with this media even if I had a drive that was capable of writing to it. I'm sure the discs won't play in most standalone players.

I assume these will have a Book Type of "DVD-R", just like the write-once DVD-R DL?

If DVD+RW DL was available on the other hand, I would jump right on it, especially if I could bitset to a DVD-ROM Book Type.

You should be more careful when handling expensive media, Wesociety! :P
