[QUOTE=mike2332;2148280]I am backing up [U]my dvd’s[/U] and I need to know if I should use dvd-r or dvd+r. I am looking to buy 500 to 1000…
I am in the U.S and I want to use whichever one would be compatible with [U]the most players[/U]. [/QUOTE]Don’t you mean compatible with [U]your[/U] player? Or are you selling copies?..
Assuming the former…VideoHelp has a list of 9000+ players and what formats they can play. Find your player on the list and see if it can play +Rs, if so stick with +Rs because they are better.
From Video Help:
4025 DVD Players support DVDPLUSR 91%
402 DVD Players do not support DVDPLUSR 9%
5043 DVD Players are not tested
Odds are pretty good that your player can use +Rs but a slightly higher percentage will play -Rs:
4558 DVD Players support DVD-R 94%
300 DVD Players do not support DVD-R 6%
4612 DVD Players are not tested
