    from what i understand about burning dvd's its a hassle. almost not worth the frusteration.

    the plus and minus part is determined by the dvd players. some dvd players only play the plus ones and others only play the minus. think there might be a difference between how much each version holds to.

    also when burning dvd's its hard to keep the original quality of the movie (from what i hear). alot of those dvd's look bootleg after you burn them.

    as far as the process goes though, you gotta burn the dvd, switch a format or two, then compress it, and burn it back on to another dvd, and after all that, the shit doesnt always work in your dvd player. (again so i hear).

    the best reason to buy a dvd burner is if you have a digital cam corder and make your own movies, those being homemade pornos, vacations... just you recording shit, etc and then wanting to put them on dvd so you can watch them.

    on your dvd burner, what does it say as far as plus and minus?

    does it say LG 12x dvd + - RW? or does it say LG dvd + or just minus?

    if it doesnt have both plus and minus you wont be able to burn in that format.

    and again, some dvd players will only play plus's and some only minus's.

    i do know that much.

    Most DVD burtners offer + and -. There is no reason why one is better than the other.

    Most DVD burners are able to play both formats now.

    You aren't shit unless you gotz the Dual Layer burner :p

    Tesser, don't listen to tease.

    It's extremely easy with current programs to burn a dvd. As easy as put your discs in and press burn. What is somewhat complicated (but even this is simple really) is ripping a dvd. There is a huge difference.

    I have a DVD burner and it works fucking fantastic. Back shit up to 4.7 or via dual layer 9+gb. The dvds I burn come out crystal fucking clear, not at all like a bootleg you buy off the streets. The difference between the boots and what you are doing, is that they are using SVCD format MPEG-2, where you will be using the same DVD format that the manufacturer uses. And on top of that, the boots are usually cams in the theatres, which come out shitty no matter what.

    For help and all the info you will need, go to http://www.afterdawn.com/. Step-by-steps, prog reviews, different methods, all that shit is there. Have fun.

    seldoon-

    what brand is your dvd burner? speed etc?

    ps- i did mention that it was hard (from what i heard) and it still is i think if the person trying to do it is uninformed about it or not computer savvy.
