How is the DVD+RW format related to DVD-RAM and DVD-RW?

 

 

  

DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, and DVD-RW are all rewritable DVD formats.

 

DVD+RW and DVD-RW were designed to be compatible with existing DVD-ROM drives and DVD-Video players when recorded on a DVD+RW or a DVD-RW video recorder or PC DVD+RW or DVD-RW drives.

 

DVD+RW and DVD-RW can be re-written 1,000 times and DVD-RAM can be re-written up to 10,000 times.

 

DVD-RAM is compatible only with DVD-RAM drives and is generally in a cartridge. However, it can be accessed randomly like a hard drive making it a good choice for computer data applications.

 

Always check with your drive or recorder manufacturere for a lsiting of compatible media formats and MIDs before purchasing DVD media.
