Question: What is the difference between a CD, Data DVD, and DVD Video?
A CD will hold 700MB of data. It is readable in virtually every computer. Most DVD players connected to a TV will display JPEG images from the CD.

A Data DVD will hold 4.6GB of data, or about 6.5 times as much as a CD. A Data DVD is similar to a CD but it requires a DVD reader in a computer to read it. Most newer computers have a DVD reader. A Data DVD cannot be read in most DVD players for TV viewing.

A DVD Video is a DVD-R disc that has been formatted for movies. It works the same as a DVD movie that you would rent from your local video store (Blockbuster Video, Redbox, etc.)
