This basic info you are able to retrieve/ find out by yourself using search...
BTW, "IsoBuster" is a great tool. (Has nothing to do with your question though).
does the dvd-R take movies better than the +r i havent had any luck burning movies the ones i have made work great in the computer but you put it in any stand alone dvd player and they eather dont play/thell go for a bit and freeze up/sometines they keep trying to access the disk i thought maby i had the wrong media i have the dvd+ r thanks for any help
Some players prefer -R (or +R bitset to -ROM), but it sounds like a media problem...try some better quality media, and see how you get on.
there's a sticky thread entitles "what is the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R in the blank media forum. that has more information than you'll ever WANT to know on blank dvd media
also check out videohelp.comsearch for your dvd player(s) to see if they like -R's or +R better.
