What kind of CD's & DVD's to buy? That is the question santa will be asking himself this christmas for stocking stuffers, I have so many machines and burners he is probably spinning his head this year.
My new toshiba laptop
only likes the DVD+ stuf, DVD+R (8x), DVD+RW (4x), DVD+R (double layer 2.4x). For the CD's it only likes CD-, CD-R(24x), CD-RW(10x).
My mac mini
, writes DVD-R discs at up to 4x speed, writes DVD-RW discs at up to 2x speed, writes DVD+R discs at up to 4x speed, writes DVD+RW discs at up to 2.4x speed, reads DVDs at up to 8x speed, writes CD-R discs at up to 16x speed, writes CD-RW discs at up to 8x speed, reads CDs at up to 24x speed
Now, I think my powerbook is a little differnt drive, I think it does DVD-RW and CD-RW, im not sure how fast. (not sure when they started shipping the double layer drives).
Now I have an old cd burner and an old dvd burner upstairs, im not sure what either of those do, but I doubt I will need either. Chalk up one more kudo for good usability on the mac that they made it work with either.
