    I have searched the forums and couldn't find anything on this subject relating to DVD's. I have been burning vcd's to play on my Hitachi home unit and realized a couple of times i forgot to close the disks to never be writen to again ( now they paly). The home unit supports vcd dvd and audio cd but, now acording to the website it doesn't support writable dvd's. Purchased A rewritable DVD drive and want to move onto the world of none degrated sound and video. Enough long winded garbage------ Once a DVD -/+r or DVD -/+RW is closed to never written again is it still looked at by my home machine as writable media or is it officially a DVD that is playable??
    Or am I wasting my time??

    Thanks in advance for any help ( maybe I wont get flamed for a stupid question)

    That website is probably right. Not every dvd-player can play dvd-r discs. And some that play dvd-r won't play dvd-rw, because it's a completely different material. So you could still run into some problems, even when they're supposed to work.
