    Will my burner be able to use these media? Can they be played back on a standard home DVD player?

    Thanks!

    There would be a much better chance of getting an answer, if folks knew what you were talking about.

    What media?

    Hmm. My subject got truncated.

    Should have been 3' or 8cm DVD media. I'm wanting to make a short project but don't need to use an entire standard sized DVD media when the mini will work better for me sizewise. I suppose I should consider the smaller size in relation to the recipients' hardware, too.

    Thanks for the reply!

    All CD and DVD burners that I have seen, have the smaller diameter recess in the tray, so the 3" will fit.

    It is the software you use that will determine whether or not you can burn to that size disk/disc. Most programs will.

    Thanks. I now see the recess for the mini disk in the tray.

    I have a selection for software to use and I'm sure one will do.

    Your help is appreciated!

    You are welcome, but come back, and let us know if you got a successful burn.
