    I'll be honest - i dont really understand the differenve between the two types, but was wondering if any one type was better for burning movies onto (and the occasional pc game)?

    ive been using dvd+r for all my burnt movies, but are dvd-r's just as good? cos theyre a bit cheaper generally?

    cheers for any help in advance

    ps : sorry I.K.E if this belongs in software/hardware world - but its movie related.

    cheers lads

    +R is a slightly better quality wise

    - R has a slightly better compatibility with players

    If you bought 100 dvdr&#39;s for &#036;40 that should have been the first clue.

    COMPUSA brand dvd-r&#39;s dvd+r&#39;s are really good and so is the price.
    you can get 10 w/cases for 14.99 or 15 w/o cases for 14.99

    A number of people have been using them and there hasn&#39;t been any complaints.

    As far as the difference betweent the + or - format isn&#39;t really nothing.

    However the + format is newer and the - format will soon be out dated.

    If you have a dual format burner, buy the cheapest disk. lol

    (Entity&#39;s reply is correct.)

    There are different grades of dvdr&#39;s for each, and not all of them work well with all drives.

    There are 8.x GB ones. But they are still very expensive (&#036;15 or more) and require a special dual-layer dvd-burner.

    I get my dvd-r&#39;s for &#036;28 now. They were &#036;35 but the price dropped. I dont have any problems with them. Sometimes if I burn it too fast my ps2 will read it alittle laggy but still playable. My dvd player reads them perfect.
