Burn iDVD Video projects onto DVD+R/RW
Authored by: KRC on Apr 08, '04 01:23:49PM

The big question would be: Will the DVD+R work on an ordinary DVD Player? If I can recall, some DVD+R's don't work on older DVD players ... well, mine doesn't but will take DVD-R's.

Another question: could you allow iDVD to burn on a DVD-RW disc instead of a DVD-R? I never use iDVD so I can't say for certain but I would think it's more conservative to use a DVD-RW disc (since packs of blank DVD media is quite expensive) since the intention of this hint is to copy the DVD image into a DVD+R disc. (For whatever reason, I may not know) That way, once you have cloned the DVD-RW disc into a DVD+R, you could then erase the DVD-RW disc, burn a different iDVD project, then transfer that to a DVD+R.

Burn iDVD Video projects onto DVD+R/RW
Authored by: JasonUK on Apr 08, '04 02:30:58PM

The reason for wanting to put iDVD projects on a DVD+R disc is for some DVD players that don't like DVD-R discs, or ones that DVD-Rs don't behave properly in. Although this is only a small percentage of DVD players, it may be handy to burn projects to a different format, especially if you are sending discs to a friend that has a Philips DVD player - who definitely prefer DVD+R/RW discs.
Getting a iDVD to record directly to an image, or using a DVD-RW would be a sensible idea also.

I've never tried this personally, but supposedly iDVD can be made to record to DVD-RW (even though it doesn't want to). What you do is insert a DVD-R disk and click record. The actually recording doesn't happen immediately though; iDVD needs to do some encoding. During that time you can eject the DVD-R disk and put in a DVD-RW and iDVD is none the wiser.
