    I intend to burn some miniDV tapes to DVD. Which type of blank DVD should I use, DVD-R or DVD+R, to enable me to play these on my DVD32R (when it is back from the repair department of IAG)?

    Thanks.

    I've found only DVD+R's using the Ritek dye are playable on my 32r, but be warned they don't always work. I get a lot of freezing when playing them back.
    This is why I bought a cheapo dvd player from Asda :D

    Thanks, which manufacturers use that dye?

    I have a cheapo dvd player as well, but it would be nice not to have the "how much did the Tag cost and you still need the cheapo to watch our home movies" comments. Mind you, with the Tag in dry dock the comments have a different basis at the moment.

    My FLR plays both +R and -R from all different manufacturers with no problems

    Currently the absolute best quality recordable disks are Taiyo Yuden (TY) DVD+Rs , which you booktype to DVD-ROM, Plextor branded disks are also Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim DVD+Rs also give extremely good results, both of these disks give potentially the lowest error rate, MUCH lower than anything Ritek have produced to date. Typically you can get well under the PIF error rate of an average factory pressed disk if you record a TY or Verbatim 16x DVD+R at 8x.
