Phase 2 test procedure is designed to test the compatibility of DVD drives with DVD writable media including DVD-R (for general) and DVD+R. The test plan includes detailed instructions on how to create and test the recordable media and how to determine the result from each test. Following implementation of Phase 1 (NIST Special Publication 500-254), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Optical Technology Storage Association (OSTA) and the DVD Association (DVDA) expanded the scope of testing in Phase 2. Phase 2 includes testing of DVD recordable drives and also includes a procedure to create test media.
