COMDEX, Booth #L5132 -- Sony Electronics today announced a new suite of DVD recordable discs, including DVD-RW
and DVD-R, as well as DVD+RW and DVD+R media.
Pioneer's newest drive (model DVR-A03) writes DVD-RW
as well as DVD-R, and--a stroke of genius here--it also writes CD-R and CD-RW.
announced today that it has developed software extensions for its leading DVD recorder platforms which enable a consumer to use all of the popular types of recordable DVD media, including DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW
, and DVD-RAM.
DVD+RW drives can read DVD-ROM, audio CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R and DVD-RW

CEO Chris Gorog told me, in person, that Roxio is working on DVD-writing software, but he did not say whether the target medium is the Hitachi/Toshiba/Panasonic DVD-RAM, or Pioneer's alternatives: the four-year-old writeonce DVD-R, or its upcoming sibling, rewritable DVD-RW
In addition, TDK also offers standard 8cm DVD-R and DVD-RW
While both authoring and general media can be read by all DVD drives--DVD-ROM, DVD-Video, DVD-RW
, DVD-RAM, and DVD-Video--technical differences make it impossible to write to DVD-R authoring media using a general DVD-R system.
