HI,
A few weeks ago, I was looking around for a cheap DVD re-writer and came across this NEC which I'm sure boasted writing to + and - formats on DVD and CD.
Now I'm looking to actually buy it, everywhere shows it as only the + format.
Am I going nuts ?
Does anyone have one ?

Thanks,
Womble

They are two different competing standards. + seems to be the better and winning, but - is so far cheaper. There is also a third standard, DVD-RAM.

I don't have any details on the differences but it has been discussed here before.

Here have a look under the cdrom heading after the page has loaded it tells you what format NEC drives handle corresponding to their model number...LINKAGE and with prices.

I have the ND-1100a from DELL. It came in a machine for work and I threw it in my own machine "Non-Dell" of course and it works fine. I upgraded the firmware and uses DVDXCOPY and make perfect movies in about 30mins. I've used the DVD+RW discs just to see if thye come out fine and they do perfectly. I havent tried the DVD+R discs yet but they burn faster at 4x instead of 2.4x in DVD+RW mode. I love the drive but eventually would like something quicker when they improve speeds. Nothing like 1 Disc holding 4.7Gb of space! I backup my image for my pc on 1 DVD like a charm.
