And do you worry that those cherished videos you took of your family holiday, or special birthday party will not play in your DVD Player? Well, BenQ provides Book Type Management to free you of those worries. Now you can freely choose the disc to be written as DVD-ROM type - the most recognisable disc format of existing DVD players. In theory, DVD+R/+RW disc has a very similar physical format to DVDROM (just like the normal DVD titles you own), and therefore secures a higher compatibility compared to other formats. However some DVD Players or DVDROMs, particularly those old style ones, will first detect the disc and find only the DVDROM format accessible. BenQ provides the solution for these annoying compatibility problems faced when you insert your meticulously made DVD+RW film into a DVD Player. Book Type Management gives you the option to change the format of your burned DVD+RW media, or simply to burn to “DVDROM” format - the most recognised format. 99.4% of the disc can be recognised by the DVD Player after you have changed it, and you can turn it back to +RW format anytime you wish on +RW discs.
