    excuse the dumb question

    I still have to buy the DVD ROM drive for my new HCPC build...
    Prob a black Lite-on 165/166..

    but..
    am stalling at the last hurdle...

    Clearly most DVD writers are tied to certain formats (although I have SONY 500 multi format, so no probs there)...
    but what about the DVD ROM drives (readers) ?

    I've just seen some product descriptions talking about (eg) "..it plays DVD-R and -RW..." (think this was in the Tosh 1712 PDF brochure)

    so - in principle, are all DVD ROM readers capable of playing both -R/-RW and +R/+RW formats (allowing for some variations due to manufact. of the blank media) ?

    as I've started using mainly +R/+RW on my SONY writer, I don't want to end up with a DVD ROM in the HCPC which won't play em !
