Re: [vox-tech] backing up DVDs (was Re: [vox] fair use / DVD questions)

Thanks for all the response about DVD burning. I'll have to try out cdrecord-prodvd.


I actually used an external DVD+/-RW drive (and an external HD) connected to my laptop through a PMCMCIA USB2.0 card. As far as I could tell, no problems with byte transfer there at all, after I got it all setup. My 2.4.20 kernel liked to crash when I ejected the card, though, but I found a work-a-round.

I also just bought a motherboard with both USB2 and firewire built in. Haven't tried external devices with it in Linux yet, but I don't anticipate any problems.

I have done a bit of burning of DVD+R and +RW media for work here.

I use cdrecord-prodvd and xcdroast for the GUI.

I have successfully recorded 4.7 GB of data on +R media, but I have no
experience with -R media whatsoever.  We use Plextor 504A.

i've had my eye on the 708-UF.  just need to get myself a USB 2.0
motherboard (if they exist yet) or a card.  and check USB 2.0 status in
the linux kernel.

btw, what is DVD-RAM format?  seems to be distinct from DVD+/-R/RW.
