    DVD question

    I have 7700MB of video on my HD that my daughters have sent me of my grand-children and would like to transfer them to a DVD disk. I have DVD burners in my PC but have never burned a DVD. What I would like to know is what kind of DVD's should I buy and how much video can a DVD hold? Should they be DVD+r, DVD RW ??????

    Catz,

    Here is some general information on DVDs. As to what type you should buy this depends on what formats your DVD writer supports. {DVD+RW, DVD-RW}

    What kind of DVD do you want? A data DVD, where you simply burn the video as is to DVD can hold about 4.35 Gigs on a single layer. If you want a video DVD that will play in all DVD players you're going to need software other than simple burning software and in that case space is based on length of video and quality break points that are acceptable. For instance, one hour of video per single layer DVD is considered "full" quality, but two hours still looks acceptable for most folks.
