Hi all I am thinking of buying a standalone dvd recorder, after some research I had decided on the Sony RDR-GX3 due to reviews and the use of minus r/rw disks that will be compatible with my PC writer. It lacks a firewire card for my dv camcorder, but I can hook it up via s-video so thats not a major problem. But, reading some forums, it seems the recorder is very fussy over discs used, and this is a concern for me. Are there any others I should consider, I do need to use minus r/rw discs unless there is a compelling enough reason to upgrade the PC writer to a dual format one. Secondly, and for me the most important question. I understand you can record onto RW disks in a "VR" mode, which allows later editing etc. Can this mode of dvdr be read by pc dvdroms ? Thanks in advance.
