    I need to go out and buy a DVD writter this weekend but one thing still puzzles me.

    They can all do DVD+/- and obviously, I need to buy either +/- media but which one should I go for?

    I assume that any PC with a DVD ROM drive can read either.

    But what about if I want to create a video DVD to play on the Tosh DVD player under the TV?

    And what about if I want to burn a video DVD for the inlaws who have a £29 cheap thing from Tesco?

    Any clues?

    Click the link and enter the model number of your player and it should come up with what media is compatable with your machine...

    I think the easy answer to your question is, "Whatever is on special".

    I would be very suprised if the `el cheapo' didn't accept any disk that was thrown at it. And most Toshiba's accept both formats, but some have not liked the +R format.

    Usually, the cheapest disks are more prone to failure, and Ritek disks give an excellent balance between performance and cost.
