Predicting new DVD drive compatibility with Retrospect

Recommended Posts

EMC is very far behind on certifying DVD+/-RW drives, and most certified drives are no longer manufactured or available for purchase. It would be nice if we had some information on writing techniques used by Retrospect, to allow some prediction of which newer drives *might* be compatible (as in "configurable" using Retrospect's facilities).


There are sites that do detailed technical reviews on drives (cdrlabs.com, cdrinfo.com, and others), and knowing which features Retrospect depends on (Packet writing, for example) might help us choose a compatible drive.


Is this even a viable approach? Would anybody from EMC care to comment?
