    Alright techies, this is really off topic

    I'm thinking about getting some home-made copies of concerts that occurred over twenty years ago. They are not available commercially but there is a guy who mostly trades but will copy for the cost of expenses. He converts from VHS to DVD-R format.
    My information is that Toshiba supports the DVD-R format and that is the brand of my DVD player. I don't think I will have compatibility issues but want to try to make sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks.
    Dave

    Dave, you may want to have a look at these links, they may be helpful in deciphering the DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW formats you friend may be using. You should ask him, very specifically, what type of disk and recording format he's using.

    What's the Difference?

    Formats explained

    I hope that helps! From what I could gather in your OP, I think you should be OK.

    MOST home set top DVD players and or recorders are compatible with the
    DVD-R format, and the DVD-RW (rewritable disks). Some, usually Panasonic also work with DVD-RAM.
