Got this in my email. Might be of some interest to someone: The Recordable DVD Council, set up two years ago to help promote recordable DVD, has announced a new standard that it hopes will help ease consumer confusion regarding recordable DVD, and help manufacturers to market their products more easily. Dubbed DVD-Multi, the standard includes the write-once DVD-R and rewritable DVD-RAM and DVD-RW formats, which the Recordable DVD Council claims offer the best compatibility with existing DVD players. Manufacturers that make a DVD recorder that supports these three formats will be able to market their products as a DVD-Multi product, which is hoped will help make life easier for consumers and boost the acceptance of recordable DVD. Well there ya go.
