DVD Compatibility
The type of DVD discs we put your video onto are DVD-R. They are a type of DVD that can be written to once, and work on most DVD-Video players. These DVDs can hold 4.7GB of data and we create them region free, so they will play anywhere in the world.
Other types of DVD recordable media are DVD-RAM (which only a few players will play), DVD-RW (which seems to have nearly the same compatibility as DVD-R), and DVD+RW (too new to say).

In brief:
DVD-R video discs play on almost all new players and on 75% of players made before 1999.

The short version:
1st generation DVD Players: 75% will play 4.7GB DVD-R.
2nd generation DVD Players: 95% will play 4.7GB DVD-R.
3rd generation DVD Players (sold after November 1999): All will play DVD-R.

'4th generation' Players (progressive scan, component, multi-read): All will play all DVD-R.

Side Note! There have recently (in 2003 & 2004) been some ultra-cheap models from Chinese manufacturers that not only have problems with DVD-R's but also freeze trying to play any high bit-rate DVD's. If you are thinking of buying one of these, we suggest bringing a high bit rate DVD with you to the store and try it out first.
If you need an example high bit rate DVD-R, call us for a sample.

The long version:
(X = an incompatibility problem, blank = all OK)
