I can only say that
- i couldn’t find a dvd-rom drive that refused mitsubishi dvd-r/w, only crap discs may cause problems
- some drives don’t read dvd+r/w
- some standalones don’t read all (or even none) of dvd+/- r(w)
So it is quite clear that dvd-r is not less compatible than dvd+r, at least for dvd-roms (read twice before answering; many people have trouble as to if a statement implies a true negation or not; this one doesn’t). Standalones seem to be another topic.
PS2: as to cdrinfo, PS2 can read dvd+/- r, but neither +rw nor -rw.
I still can’t see anything (besides 2,4x instead of 2x / 1x) that makes dvd+ better than dvd-.
OK, I don’t care if you are not able to see anything that makes DVD+RW better than DVD-RW since I can and whether you like DVD-RW or DVD+RW has nothing to do with me.
I listed not only DVDplusRW.org but also CDRinfo.com, CDfreaks.com, CDRlabs.com, DV-Info.net, ZDnet, OC.com.tw, DVDDemystiefied.com, Microsoft, Philips, Yamaha, and a lot others. If you properly have visited each of the links, quite a lot of them lead to hundreds of other sites. The only reason there are many links to DVDplusRW.org Forum is because I have read the posts there for some time carefully and a lot of them are my own postings.
And exactly what makes DVDplusRW.org not independent? Because DVD+RW site has a banner advertising an Alera DVD+RW drive? Because the operator lives in the Netherlands where Philips is a large company? Why do you compare Pioneer with DVDplusRW.org at all? The former is the primary manufacturer of DVD-RW drives and the primary manufacturer of DVD+RW drives is RICOH, not DVDplusRW.org forum.
Since you are praising only DVD-RW, I should suspect you could be a shareholder of Pioneer? Well, why don’t you suggest everyone reveal one’s true identity and etc.
