People tend to say that -R is better for making dvd - video (better compatability) while +R is better for data storage.

I find that there is no specific reason why one should use one format for a specific purpose than the other. Most stand alone players produced in the last couple of years most probably play both formats while (quoting Spath :stuck_out_tongue: ) there is no reason why ones data are safer when burned in +R than in -R.
