Does this mean that it writes at 2x or?
DVD version 2 are 2x DVDs if they are DVD-R. I had to read the Toshiba guide three times to get that out, but yes it will be able to burn at 2x speed if you have a 2x burner.
Really? The online place where I'm prob going to order the disks has a burner comparison chart and all listed at 1x...
Any idea why they wouldn't just be called 2x instead of v2?
Thats not entirely correct. Version 2 could be an update to the dye used on the disc. For example Ritek G04 had a v2 dye on them. Generally though, i think most suppliers do tend to relate version to speed.
So I guess to find out forsure I need to goto the official optodisc site and find out? Maybe 4x will end up being not much more money and I'll go with that
I suppose so. Hope you get it sorted. I would use Ritek media mind you! ;-)
I was tempted to use ritek, but my flakey ps2 seems to work with optodisc and dvdxcopy or alchol 120% for backups. That seems to be the only combo that satisfies it
These end up being cheaper anyway (and prob going to get the 4x on sale)
Thanks for the info.
It's not a v2 dye, so to say.
It says "DVD-R, V2.0", it's a standard, I believe for 1x-2x 4.7GB media, just as 4x media is "DVD-R 2.2".
It might be 2x but also is not necessarily so.
I really am disappointed on some of your knowledge on the matter. Haven't read the dvd faq? Atleast the original and official meaning of dvd-r 2.0 refers to the space on the disc, as 1.0 has 3.68 gigs and 2.0 has 4.37 gigs.
There are Generation 2's, 2.4's, 4's 4.2's etc... that i have seen. I would guess dye, but who really knows for sure without getting on to a supplier or manufacturer
After reading a bunch of websites, sounds to me like a not uniform manufature term. I guess the best thing is to visit the website of the company and try and find out how they define it.
There's a difference between "DVD-R V2.0" and "Generation 2" ou "Version 2 dye" or whatever. The first is a universal standard, the second a manufacturer thing.
Separate names with a comma.
