Well, my idea was that many standalone players (e.g. all the Philips ones)
_do_ support reading CD-R's: they need to when you upgrade the BIOS.
So the hardware, at least, is compatible with both DVD and CD-R.
So, I thought that, maybe, they would not object at having a DVD format
on a CD-R media.
But you are right, it remains to be checked ...
