    I've heard of Types 1 and 2 - removable and nonremovable from their caddies, or is it the other way round? - but I've now found double-sided disks at a good price, apparently in caddies, which are specified as Type 4. :confused: What does that mean? Oh, and Verbatim is supposed to be one of the better brands, right? Even if Panasonic want me to use theirs...?

    Type 1 are single sided and non removeable.

    Type 2 are single sided and removable from caddy.

    Type 4 are double sided discs and removable from caddy.

    Thanks, nwgarratt, just what I was looking for, then! :cool: Would that mean that the double-sided nonremovables are Type 3?

    I don't think there is a type 3. I haven't seen them anywhere. Type 1 was the first RAM discs that came out years ago. All the ones I see now are removeable. I suppose as many PC DVD writers can write/read non caddy RAM (like my LG).

    Thanks again. I have seen double-sided nonremovable disks, identified as Type 1(!), at another local online shop, but I think either they or the one where I found the Type 4 disks may be confused, because they list them under the same part/v #: 43121... :rolleyes:
