I've taken a look at www.cdrinfo.com and www.videohelp.com and whilst these are great sites they don't seem to help much on the latest DVD recorders, nor the playing side of PC burners (at least as far as I could see). I have a Dell PC with a NEC DVD Burner for formats +R/+RW and am trying (with difficulty) to choose a DVD/HDD recorder. I have 2 questions:- 1) Does anyone know whether the latest HDD/DVD -R/-RW recorders (Pansonic / Toshiba etc) will play +R/+RW discs? 2) Will the PC be able to read -R/-RW/RAM discs recorded by the DVD Recorder? If the answer's no then it seems that my selection will be limited to the new Sony HX900 /1000 (although sadly they dont include DVD library software which I was hoping for).
