Steve I try to explain terms to another member rather than send you off on a URL chase. DVD-R is one time burn of a DVD-R disc usually for a movie or concert.



DVD/RW is eraseable, it can be re/written with computer Random Access Memory (RAM). I may own a computer but there is no reason why, I shouldn't learn what the terms are/and used for what purpose, should WebTV be discontinued! Steve I hope this helps you understand the terms better. :)

Thanks Hob :)

Now for the big question do do think its worth it to get a DVD+RW for my PC? Philips has a DVD+RW for $499, while I'll have the money, with summer vacation approaching, I dont know if Im ready to jump into it or not. And plus the media is still kinda expensive for me.

I wasn't trying to send anyone on a url chase.

There is so much to understand, that to try to explain DVD-R, DVD+R,

DVD-RAM, DVD-RW & DVD+RW (and all five are different and not fully interchangable) I thought it would be eaiser to go the source of pages of info.

Check Circuit City for the Phillips DVD+RW drive, They have it and a Sony for $399.
