    What is the difference between DVD-ROM and DVD+RW? and is that technology out that you can rewrite a DVD on a laptop.

    Rom is a read only drive, no write ability. RW is read, write, and with the proper media erase and re-write to the same media. As far as wheather it is available for portables is I haven't seen any drives yet.

    I have seen a dvd+rw(?) for a laptop...
    But they are expensive... One thing to remember is tath there a 2 other dvd recording formats floating around right now... The "RW" looks like it might be winning,,, but I would not put that much money into before I knew it was THE format...
