What's miniDVD,cDVD?

This is no STANDARD as VCD,SVCD or DVD.

miniDVD
is basicly a DVD but on a CD-R(W) instead of a DVD disc. miniDVD is also sometimes called cDVD. A miniDVD does only fit about 15 minutes video on a 650 MB CD-R(W).

What's DVD then? read on the DVD page.


Why doesn't miniDVD work on a standalone player?


The DVD Player must be able to identify the CD-R/W miniDVD as a ordinary DVD-Video disc, many players identifies CD-R/W as VCD, SVCD or CD Audio and not DVD-Video.
and/or
the high bitrate on DVD requires the CD-R/W reader in the DVD player to support at least 8x CD-R/W reading speed, and most DVD Players support only a maximum of 2x.



A miniDVD can be played on
