-r & +r



Hi, What is the difference between -R & +R dvd’s? Thanx!


DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.

DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 89% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.

Hope that helps!

I got it from http://www.videohelp.com/dvd


Yes, thanx!


No problem. :wink:


Also, generally, +R is better quality on most burners.


The problem is when you burn with +R and you don’t booktype it then you might have compatability issue when you play it in some of stand alone DVD players.
