    How does this software actually works (program to
    identify DVD-R media)? There is some read-me, but
    it´s mainly in Japanese...

    When I start the program (and the DVD is in), nothing
    happens with the software. I use iMac, OS X. No
    superdrive.

    There is a code on every DVD-R that identifies the brand or manufacturer. It is useful to know because many companies make their own buy media from others. So you can buy a sony this week that is made by Taiyo Yuden, but next week it may be made by someone else. I have a list of codes that work well with certain burners.

    The best list is here:

    Thanks, but I do understand that. :)

    My question is, that how the software works (=what will I do to get the info from the certain DVD).

    When I start it, it doesn´t do any "scanning" (when I have a DVD "in") etc, nor there aren´t any options on the menus.

    When I read this read-me, it´s mainly in Japanese, and it says something about the "finder"..

    I know this might be stupid, but I can´t figure it out.

    Thanks again.

    All you do is select your dvd reader that is in the list. You put your dvd-r in, and then load the dvd media inspector. It then will tell you in a small text display what you have.

    If you check out that list many people have rated the media. So you can get an idea there.
