What blank DVD’s are the most compatiable to any DVD or all DVD players? DVD-R’s, DVD+R’s,or DVD+RW’s ect. thanks


#2

good quality DVD+R`s that have the book type set to DVD-ROM.


#3

I would say DVD-Rs, most players can play them.


#4

Huh? With confidence, the answer is DVD+R (as also noted by ako). See http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/113

To clarify further, dvd-r used to be more compatible. Now that dvd+r’s can be bitset they are more compatible only if they are bitset (the book type is changed to dvd-rom). Some dirves can bitset and some cannot.


#6

Yup. Honestly as long as you are using a quality disc of either format it doesn’t matter. Not unless you have a burner that doesn’t support booktype/bitsetting options.

Both of my drives bitset so I really never take into account if it is + or -. I use more + but that is only because my first burner was 8x+, 4x-, so my favorite medias became +. I still have a reasonable amount of - and never really even think about which will be more compatible when I burn. Most newer players play both anyway (it’s older players that have more problems with un-bitset +r).

Just look for Made in Japan on the box. You’ll find MIJ media from Fuji, Maxell, TDK, and Sony.
