I have a question about DVD+r’s and DVD-r’s. I would rather use DVD+r’s over DVD-r. But someone said that not all DVD+r’s will work in dvd/ps2’s, does anyone know if DVD+r’s will work in most DVD/PS 2 players?

dvd+rs WILL work in most dvd players, but whether or not a player can play them or not will vary on an individual basis, and the same goes for dvd-rs as well, so it’s not like all dvd players can play dvd-r. as for the PS2, earlier generations can only read dvd-r, while later generations can read both.

THanx for the heads up AZImmortal. Well I’ll probably be getting my first DVD player for this Christmas and I wanted to ask you which one you suggest. I’m looking for one that is really good, plays almost all DVD+r’s but isnt too expensive but worth every penny. Thanx for all the help.

It depends. You should test it by yourself and see how it works with your upcoming DVD player.

All I know for sure, all Taiyo Yuden DVD-R work just fine in my 5.y.o. Panasonic DVD A350.
Other DVD-R brands have issues there. Although I didn’t try Verbatim ( MCC ) yet.
Ricoh DVD+R can be played like 50-50. Weird !

thanx for the reply BoSkin. But I’m looking for a DVD player that can play DVD+R’s. I have a Plextor 708a burner which can burn some DVD+r 4X at 8X which I want to take advantage of. Any other suggestions would really help in me selecting the right DVD player for this.
