    Hi

    Just about to invest in a Pioneer 104 DVD-R writer, can anybody here confirm whether or not this player supports DVD-R's & DVD-RW, if so which brand DVD-R etc would you recommend?

    Thx, in advance....

    I have a 636, and it supports DVD+RW and DVD+R according to

    http://www.vcdhelper.com/

    It supports DVD-R, but DVD-RW is unknown. It waould be surprising if it did not support DVD-RW.

    Why, DVD-RW? Go for any of the 2nd generation DVD+RW/+R writers. Faster and more flexible. Choose one with the software you prefer. They are all made by Ricoh.

    Hi

    Why a DVD-R/RW drive, because I can get one for £244.99 inc VAT, is a bargain!!!, have'nt done much research into DVD+R/RW, how much can you pick one up for.

    I tested a datasafe DVD-RW last night on the Pioneer 636D and it worked fine, booted and played my VOB, had to do some F****** around when I was writing it but got it worked fine, recommend newbies buying RW saves so much cash.

    Thx...
