The nominal capacity of the single sided DVD is 120 minutes but some 32 different definitions are recognised including: EP -- extended play - 360 minutes LP -- long play - 240 minutes SP -- standard play - 120 minutes FINE - 60 minutes But how are you getting your source? What definition is it in? > Nutshell: how good will k3b and my Pioneer burner do on dubbing > this professioally recorded disc? As I've already said I know little of k3b but you'll probably need some sort of authoring/editing software and possibly another package for compression/definition conversion. > Also, Does thw "RW" mean tthat > I can re-tape over this with another edu DVD? Yes, it means that the total disk can be rewritten -- but the ability to edit without rewriting all can be quite limited. And RW disks can have a rather limited rewrite life -- some 10s of times. > > gary > > PS: I much prefer analogue cassettes; I've been taping stuff > since I taped "American Bandstand" off the TV :-) EP or LP modes with 6 or 4 hour capacity would probably both cater for a better quality than your analogue cassettes. > > > > Malcolm _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
