I am in the process of making a DVD of our summer holiday, our camcorder is a new one we bought a Sony HDR-CX130E. The manual says the discs that can be used are DVD-R and DVD+R. The DVDs I have already at home from previous disc burning is DVD-RW. Is that the same thing? Would it be OK to use them? What's the difference?

If it doesn't list DVD-RW as compatable,they probably
aren't going to work or wont work properly.
DVD-RW disks are erasable.
-R and +R disks are not erasable.
I have had the best compatability with DVD players
by using DVD+R disks,but that also depends on the
format the camcorder is recording the video in.

use only what the manual lists if you are burning say from the camera hard drive to the disk inside the camera, if it is in the computer, youll need to use the discs appropriate for the computer, you can find this out usually by going to the properties of your disk drive. If the computer was made in the last few (about 3) years, it will likely work with anything round and plastic. Dont use RW unless you dont want them to last long, thats just a monumental waste of money and risk of the disk being erased. :)
