    I want to use DVD as a medium for delivering computer animations to
    the general public, and want to buy a burner that will produce the
    most compatible dvd's for public consumption. Especially since the
    host players will be of every make and variety.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    If you want 100% compatibility, and are going to make over
    100 copies, then DVD replication in an actual pressing plant
    would be the best answer. Check the site below:

    Note that I have no idea if the link is to a reputable dealer
    or if their prices are competitive. I jus ticked it because
    it was the first to come up in a search that had price quotes.

  3. I don't think its a matter of which burner, rather a mater of which format.


    That study shows that the minus R format is compatible with almost 97
    percent of DVD players whilst the plus R format is compatible with just over
    87 percent of players.

    Actually the deciding factor in the end is the DVD player. If the user has a
    piece of crap player, it won't play -R or +R either one. The formats are
    both about the same, the most important part of the equation is the DVD

    Why don't you ask in one of the burning groups, where the question
    is actually on topic, and appropriate, which it is not here.

    A DVD recordable question is "off topic" in a DVD newsgroup?
    Allan, Sep 24, 2003
  8. Yes. Those discussions are better taken to alt.video.dvdr don't you think?

    Why? The FAQ for DVD contains lots of discussion on DVD Recordable.

    This newsgroups isn't called DVDsoftware... DVDhardware. It's

  10. What does the content of the FAQ have to do with what is on topic in
    this newsgroup? The FAQ is a general document. It is not the FAQ of this
    It is pretty well known that if a newsgroup exists to discuss a
    particular topic, then discussions of that topic are best done in that
    newsgroup. alt.video.dvdr exists and it should be the newsgroup in which
    DVD recording is disucssed. If anything, it is to a poster's advantage
    to use the appropriate newsgroup. There is likely to be a higher
    percentage of experienced, helpful people there to deal with on topic
