Topic/subject pretty much says it all.

Any information you have concerning this would be greatly appreciated!
One of the upcoming drives I am interested in is the 2nd generation Philips DVDRW228K.

Thank you!

Sorry my previous post got wiped out, when I hit 'Back' on my browser to put my password in after entering it incorrectly the first time.
I am too tired to type it all over again (it was lengthy post):
I'll summarize it as follows:

1) First generation PC-based DVD+RW drives by Philips, HP and Sony will apparently not support DVD+R.
(I don't know about Ricoh).
Try www3.labdv.com and dvdplusrw.org
Both have a number of very interesting posts about this issue.


2) The 2nd generation of Philips PC DVD+RW drives is expected out in May of this year.
That is still a while to wait.

I have a bit of an update:

Philips Conmsumer Relations Dept. told me today that April/May is the anticipated release date for the second generation PC DVD+RW drive. (They also told someone else May).

They also told me that they will hopefully post a definitive answer one way or the other, concerning the DVDRW208 DVD+R issue, on the Philips web site before CEBit in March.
I was told they are still working on it at the moment, so they can't say one way or the other yet.

At least this was a good answer, and much more helpful than tech support, although I am sure tech support was only relaying what they know.
