Product Description

Review

by James K. Deane, Library Assistant at Emporia Public Library, Kansas

Largely taken from author Taylor's online DVD FAQ [Frequently Asked Questions]...this is a good reference for questions about DVD technology. It covers the history of DVD development, some minor troubleshooting, and DVD recording. Many questions may be answered in the online site [at http://www.dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html.] Libraries building extensive video technology collections should consider this along with Taylor's DVD Demystified. (Library Journal 2004-02-03)
