How read DVD-R Tivo on Windows 98?

Have been very pleased with Pioneer DVR810H. I have a thinkpad 600E with a DVD drive that reads DVD Video. What software do I need to run the DVD-R format? Windows 98 Pentium 2.

A DVD-R should be the same as a DVD. However, some older DVD drives (especially older laptop drives in my experience) have trouble reading -R and +R disks. This is due to physical differences (different reflectivity) and I don't know of anything you can do about that with software.

You might want to check with IBM for a firmware upgrade for the drive. It's a long shot but I've heard of a few cases of older drives being firmware upgradeable to read -Rs.

My experiences with IBM Thinkpad support have been very good but this one is fairly old so I'm not that hopeful. I think one of the 600s might have been their first with a DVD option. Or maybe it was one of the 7x0s but it was around that time.

If this is a corporate laptop, try your IT guy.

How read DVD-R

My preliminary contacts with IBM have been good. Perhaps I confused them with Microsoft. I'll pursue it further today and will let you know how it works out.
Thanks again.

How read DVD-R on laptop

My inquiry to IBM re upgrading DVD reader indicated my 600E machine was too old (4/99) but I was impressed with the volumes of data available on the web site. Thanks to Dave for referral.
