    I am new to trying to save various TV programmes (sports events, etc.) on to DVD blank disks to playback later. For example, I have recorded some soccer matches and wish to save them to these blank disks. Can anyone help as to whether I need to buy DVD+R or DVD-R blanks? They will just be used the once, so I don't need to have the re-write type, but I am not sure which type I need. Many thanks for any help. :)

    You may have more successful burns with DVD-R's.

    Depending on which burning software program you use, make sure to verify and finalize the burn.
    That allows the disc to be read and viewed in more optical drives.

    Sorry, perhaps didn't explain myself fully ! I have recorded programmes on my TV hard drive, and just want to transfer them on to disks, to send to a relative. So I wanted advice on which type of disk would be preferable to use!

    PSCO2007:- Thanks for the link, but being in the UK there are probably nearer sources!

    You didn't clarify that at the beginning, so I assumed you were referring to saved videos in your computer.

    I personally have never recorded and saved videos on a TV, so someone else will need to address your issue.
