Re: A few concers about quality
Just look for a dvd player that will play dvd-r's . Lately I see most units will play both dvd-r and dvd+r's so you should really have no problem here. It is compatible as long as it's dvd-r . I am not sure about your dvd player night recording question. i think you might need to clarify that one.

You can get them at Best buy. You must buy the same disc as it is spelled out on the side of the camera. Buy, DVD-RAM/R. There are DVD+ and DVD-, you must be sure to buy just like it's printed on the camera (just under the viewfinder).
