Need to start burning DVD's. Which one has the most burner support?
Seems odd that there are like six different types.
These days any burner supports any type. You pick the type for the
task at hand.
DVD-R and DVD+R: These are write-once disks. Once you've burned it
that's it, no erasing. They're the cheapest. My impression is the
DVD+R format is slightly superior.
DVD-RW and DVD+RW. These are erasable, although in time they do wear
out. Here the DVD+RW format is definitely superior as you can burn
new data on it without erasing but the DVD-RW disk has to be erased
first. They cost more than the DVD-R and DVD+R disks and burn much
DVD-DL. Write-once but they hold twice as much. Note that you pay
more than twice the price to get this doubled capacity, only use them
when you actually need a single disk to hold all the data. I have
seen a lot of quality problems with them, also. No rewritable version
of these exists.
