Best DVDs to use and other questions


Guest RCD74

Question

Guest RCD74

Hi, I am about 4 months into using Roxio. I have had some problems with burning, but this forum has helped me solve most of my problems. I am currently using Videowave to create montages with still photos and videos. I have found that with the Office Depot brand of DVD-R, once my project is burned, the sound sometimes breaks up or gets muffled in different spots when played back. The weird thing is that the spots are not cosistent throughout the same DVD when watched at different times. I found that with the TDK DVD+R, this isn't happening. Could it be the type of DVD I am using that is making it do this?

 

Basically, in a nutshell, what is the best DVD brand and type that you recommend in order to get the best quality DVD with playback?

 

Also, when you ask to post "specs", where do I find this information? I am totally new to all of this - sorry if I sound stupid!! Thanks in advance!!

The best DVD brand is whatever works with your burner, computer, and set top DVD player. That won't be Office Depot media. I would suggest Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden. TY's are only available through online stores, I believe.

DVD-RW

DVD-R discs utilize a similar technology to CD-R’s but with a different recording layer and smaller size of the information pits. There are two versions with different storage capacity:

 

DVD-RAM

Re-Writable DVD format with 2.6 Gigabytes (Ver. 1) and 4.7 Gigabytes (Ver. 2) storage capacity per side. DVD-RAM discs use the "Phase Change Recording" method where the recording layer can change between amorphous and crystalline state depending on different power of the laser.

 

DVD+RW

A re-writable DVD format with a capacity of 4.7 GB per side in the final version. It’s being developed by Philips and Pioneer as an alternative to DVD-RAM and DVD-RW.
