Sony Camcorder tells me to use Sony DVD discs. I can't find any on the internet. Sony 30 'minutes 1,4GB/GO


Of course, Sony wants you to use only Sony blank media. :-)

See:

http://www.officedepot.ca/catalog/search.do?fkey=Vs5e55Pir7fdUMwpRkEqX2z&Ntt=mini+dvd-rw

for 1.4GB "mini DVD-RW" disks made by MEMOREX.

Look at any of the "big-box" stores (BestBuy, FutureShop, Staples, OfficeDepot, WalMart, et cetera) for "mini DVD-RW" media.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The CD is not a Rewritable disk you can only burn once. If you need a DVD or CD that can be rewrite or erase look for DVD-RW or CD-RW.

Thanks for using Fixya

Years ago, my Memorex DVD RW 4x disks were good on my DVD recorder in the beginning. Now the disks are all un-recordable on DVD recorders. Why? George


DVD's only have a guaranteed life span of around 7 years before they begin to deteriate so it's possible they have now deteriated. Also if there stored in a damp or high humidity area then this will speed up the deteriating process

What disks to buy? dvdr dvdrw dvd+ dvd-????


DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc, DVDR stands for DVD Recordable and DVDRW for DVD ReWriteable. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs or regular DVD-Video discs, then you will know what a recordable DVD looks like. A recordable DVD stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD Players and most computer DVD-ROMs. If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to store several hours video on a recordable DVD using low bitrates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS, SVHS, SVCD, CVD or VCD. It is also possible to have up to 4.37* GB ordinary data or mix DVD-Video and data on a recordable DVD that can be played by most computer DVD-ROMs.

There are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW have pretty similiar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.

DVD-R and DVD-RW
DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.
DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 93% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-RW is a rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 80% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-R and DVD-RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double sided 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by DVDForum.

DVD+R and DVD+RW
DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 89% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+RW is a rewritable format and is compatible with about 79% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+R and DVD+RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double side 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by the DVD+RW Alliance.

DVD+R DL
DVD+R DL or called DVD+R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD+R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

DVD-R DL
DVD-R DL or called DVD-R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD-R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

I got this info from http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071016055835AApo5e6

If your dvdrom supports dvdrw I would suggest buying these disks as you can re-write over them if you need too.
Most recent dvdroms support all of the above.
I hope this helps

Why can'tm I play DVD+R DL/2,2x 8 Hr discs on my SharpDV-RW 250x Recorder


Does your player support the disk type you have???
Minus disks are different to Plus disks in respect to the machines they will work in and the formats you put them on to the disk my only be read by the machine the writes them

Looks like your disk type could be a mismatch,

Check them and let me know thanks

Samsung portable dvd player


those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
