DVD formats for PC and DVD Recorder

  Mike_R 13:08 08 Feb 09

I have a Sony RDR-HXD995 DVD recorder and an Evesham desktop with a Writemaster CD/DVD R/W.
I thought of recording digital TV films etc on the desktop and watching them on my TV via the DVD recorder. Unfortunately all my old rewritable DVDs are 4.7GB DVD-RAM discs which the desktop says are incompatible. Can anyone recommend a compatible DVD format betwen my PC and DV recorder, please?

supported recorder formats

It will depend on whether you model of burner will support DvD-RAM... (seems not)

Thanks. I've got on my hands and knees and had a close look at the DVD writer in the desktop. It says it takes DVD+/-R and +/-RW, as does the DVD recorder.
So it is off to somewhere to buy a few suitable DVDs.

I am pretty sure that the Sony DVD Recorders will not use RAM discs.

I use DVD+RW discs on my PC and they work ok on my RDR-HXD.

Pine Man

His make and model supports DvD-RAM playback but not DvD-RAM record...

which i find a bit odd...

As you say, the Sony DVD recorder supports DVD RAM playback as I've tried it on the old DVD discs recorded on my previous JVC DVD recorder.

Three for the price of two at the minute.

Been using these disks for a long while, with no failures. click here
