I’m sure this question has already been asked, but I can’t seem to find the thread. I have been using DVD+R succesfully for all my movie backups. Used TDK 8x +R, but lately switched to Sony 16x +R since they are more reliable and I have some movies that simply would no burn on my TDK 8x discs.
I use an LG burner, sometimes with DVD shrink and Nero Burning ROM, sometimes I use DirectX CopyXpress, if thing get difficult I sometimes use DVD decrypter. I am succesfull with about 75-80% of my copies.
The question is this. My burner supports both, +R and -R.
Can anybody please tell me, if I can burn using -R media without problems?
I am about to buy a new spindle of Sony 16x DVDs which are on sale at Best Buy for 12.99 (good deal IMO)
I’ve heard that -R media are more easily played on most DVD players,while +R media aren’t playable on some older models.
I’d really apreciate some answers on this.
