The DVD-R you purchase at Fry's or on the net usually comes with software that is compatible to that device. You should make sure that it does comes with the software, before purchasing the DVD-R, and that your operating system is supported.

Now there is a big interest these days in illegal DVD ripping into an image file and then burning that image on a new DVD-R disc but I won't have anything to do with that.

But if you want to burn DVD's you can get a software product like DVDX.

New DVD burner

Unread post by Anonymous20 » November 19th, 2003, 1:45 pm

I went on and got an external DVD burner made by TDK. At Costco it is about 239.00, I have seen the same exact one at Frys for 309.00.

This one can burn both formats, DVD-R and DVD+R. If you decide to get one make sure it does both formats. The SONY dvd burner is realy good too.

Also make sure you connect your computer to the DVD burner using Firewire port. The USB port on most computer (1.1) cant do it. You would have to change your USB post to a 2.0 and even if you do that, the transfer is slower than the firewire.

On a lap top you can get a PCI card for fire wire for about $50.00. The Fire wire card for a desktop computer is about $20.00 at Frys. Also you need a seperate external harddrive to store the video files. I suggent a 100 GB hard drive that you can connect also via FireWire. The FireWire PCI card has 3 ports on it so you can connect more than one item.

My first tape from the Street Raw series will be released on both VHS and DVD. The VHS is available now, I am working on the DVD now but i have to get another external hard drive.

Check out the tape contentsand there are some clips I will be posting there soon.
