    Best disk imo to use is DVD RAM, you can use these around 100,000 times.

    I would agree that DVD-Ram disc's are best (as long as they are kept clean).

    However as long as Vergil777 is aware that they will only play in DVD-Ram devices.

    Many PC writers and DVD-ROM drives will now play DVD-RAM discs.
    The latest PC writers from Pioneer (DVR-110 and DVR-111) now also support RAM as do the NEC writers.

    Additionally the DVD PLAYERS from Panasonic, JVC and NAD also support playback of RAM discs. Have used ram discs recorded in both SP and LP in my Panasonic S27 player and playback is fine in either mode.

    Possibly a dumb question, but how much can be recorded on double sided DVD RAM? Is it simply twice as much as on a single side? It's just that I would rather record 2-3 hour films off TV using SP (or maybe even XP) rather than LP due to the difference in recording quality.

    Edit: Do double sided DVD-RW discs exist? Couldn't find any on the web...

    You would have to stop the recording and turn the disk over, so there's no real benefit with dual sided for films I don't think.

    Are there any single sided DVDs that have a larger capacity than 4.7gb?
