Software News   Software News : Amiga Future: DVD Survey
   posted by AndreasM on 26-Mar-2009 9:17:07 (2010 reads)
The Amiga Future started a new project some days ago. Because of this we have a question for all Amiga users:

Do you have access to a DVD drive? It is not necessary that it is connected to a Amiga.

To get a general idea we have started a survey on the Amiga Future homepage.

Why do you ask?
I would think 95% have a DVD drive of some sort

May be they plan the Cover CD of the magazine to become CoverDVD, which will be great - much more data can be stored, but may lead to another problem. Who would be able to fill in a whole DVD per 2 months basis with Amiga content?
But it would be cool to have whole CD images of old CD32 games on the DVD for example. Or full video guides, long plays etc..

I have 2 DVD drives. Both are accessible to my A1200T via Ethernet network.

If you start publishing cover DVDs that will allow me to release the new 1 GB version of Total Chaos! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

@Thread

The question was:- Quote:

So i would surmise that they want to distribute some DVD's, maybe some of AmiTV stuff or the footage on youtube etc. But that is just my guess.

On the poll it has "DVD+" and "DVD-"
Are those slang terms for some official format?

Okay, this is short for:
DVD-R (Single Layer) Bytes: 4,707,319,808
DVD+R (Single Layer) Bytes: 4,700,372,992

I'll guess that most disks are DVD-R since that was the earlier format
Anyone know?

@Troels:

Is very interesting for us :)

@drHirudo

Its a nice idea and i like it. But can do :/ The cost for a CoverDVD are 3x higher as for a CoverCD. The other problem are that not all (special Classic Amiga User) have a dvd-dive at his Amiga.

This is a good question, because I think that all Amigas can to have access to one DVD, I yeah with WinUAE and now with me Sam, but fill up one DVD with Amiga programs, uff, all a great work 4GB of Amiga dats and files, incredible and I hope will see and buy it.
