Very handy when a user wants to change for example the menu screens on a disc that already contains video. DVD+RW is the only rewritable DVD format that allows on-disc editing within its basic format. Lossless Sector Replacement DVD+RW has unique feature of Lossless Sector Replacement: the ability to overwrite exactly a sector on any given location on the disc, while maintaining compatibility with the requirements for sector linking specified in the DVD-ROM and DVD-Video standards. This means for example that DVD+RW is able partially to overwrite video recordings with new ones, without the need for completely erasing the full original recording (also refer to Partial Overwrite in this glossary). It also allows you to replace the menu screens on an already written disc, or you can add new chapter stops or remove some in a recording. As other rewritable DVD formats do not support Lossless Sector Replacement within the basic system description, the features described above are not available on these DVD video recorders when recording a disc in DVD-Video compatible mode. Mt. Rainier(F/W not ready) Mt. Rainier, also known as EasyWrite, is a format specified by Microsoft, Sony, Philips and Hewlett-Packard to allow an optical disc to be used exactly like a floppy disk. That is, being able to read from and write to the disc from within any application you use, without the need for special burning software. Mt. Rainier differs from traditional packet writing software in that it performs most of the tasks (such as background formatting and handling defect management) in the hardware of the drive itself, making the system far more robust, and relieving the operating system from these tasks. Mt. Rainier will be a standard part of the forthcoming Microsoft Windows version, called Longhorn. Mt. Rainier capability is available for CD-RW and DVD+RW only. Look for the EasyWrite logo on the front of the drive to determine if it is Mt. Rainier compliant. Two-way Compatibility Two-way compatibility is the basic philosophy for DVD+R and DVD+RW. It means that existing DVD-Video discs can be played on a DVD+RW recorder (or that existing DVD-ROM discs can be read on a DVD+RW drive), and that the recordings you make on DVD+R and DVD+RW discs can be played on existing DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives. +VR functionality DVD+RW video recorders only use one recording mode that is always compatible with normal DVD-Video players, without sacrificing flexibility, and thereby offering features like favorite scene selection, partial overwriting, title dividing, chapter marker placement, etc. This is called +VR functionality. A disc recorded using +VR functionality is fully DVD-Video compatible. +VR also allows for seamless convergence between stand alone DVD+RW recorders and DVD+RW drives in a computer: a recording made on a stand alone recorder can be edited directly on the disc using any program that is +VR compliant. It allows you for example to replace the menu screens on a disc you recorded on a stand alone recorder using sophisticated graphical software on a PC with a DVD+RW drive. +VR also allows PC users to record video directly on the DVD+RW disc, without needing to store it on the hard drive first, saving time and storage space. Please note that the "VR" format employed by other recordable DVD systems is fully incompatible with normal DVD players.
