  2. Will you be doing all four volumes of “Asian Babes”? Might not be room for everything.

  3. Is there still a difference between DVDR- and DVDR+ or did it get phased out?

  7. what do you mean by video collection, ? are these your home movies,what format are they already on , why are you wanting them put ont DVD
    Give us a bit more details than you may get some more suitable answers, bear in mind the DVD is not as good a storage solution as it was hyped up to be and discs can become unusable after a very short time (2 - 3 years) without any finer detais i would back recordings up to a good quality Video rated mechanical hard drive, then back it up again to another saved off site in case of fire or theft , no matter what method you use it probably will be old hat in 5 years or so
    Give us some more details please

  10. There are technical differences, but most DVD drives support both.

    It can help to burn at a slower speed. It's like it burns the track a bit deeper and makes it easier to read back. Certainly that helps when burning audio CDs (if you are old enough to remember them)

    I asked someone in the local plumbers merchant if they wanted to borrow a dvd off me and they laughed and said it was old hat and no one had DVD players these days :mad:

    My quick straw poll actually showed that only myself and one other person still used dvds :rolleyes:
  13. Depend on what you DVD player can record onto. My Phillips DVD recorder will only work with DVD-R.

    Whatever you get @art b make sure you get one of these, I couldn't believe how quickly it rewinds DVDs.

    I’d look to convert them to digital files and store them in your own cloud space....if there aren’t petaflops of data, Hotmail gives you storage for free of pay for other storage.

    That way your collection doesn’t die should your DVD player pack up.

  20. I still have a Toshiba DVD recorder that records and masters DVDs from analog input somewhere in a box records DVD-RAM and DVD-R ( Toshibas babies).. the DVD-RAM disks are pretty because you can see the pattern of the fixed location data sectors on them..they are really fast - it could record on one part of the disk and play another.

    I also have a USB dongle for the laptop which has an analog input .. and a VHS recorder.. then use some cheap video editor to make DVD disk (Even Windows has something )

    Also copy to hard drive but remember to re-copy the data every 5 years or so as even hard disks fade out ..and they can just fail to start if stored for ages.

    Hard disk 5 to 10 years.
    Magnetic tapes 10 to 20 years.
    DvD writable 10 years.
    Flash disk 10 years.

    Basically keep the data moving over the years dont just stick it in a cupboard as it wont be readable in 10 years, either the data is corrupt or you binned the computer that used that media...
