This seems to have been missed by replies. CD-Rs only come in one format CD-R there is no CD+R. Therefore some clarification please are you talking about DVDs, CDs or both?
Where DVDs are concerned some players are just plain picky and some will play anything, some will recognise booktype -ROMs and some won't. It's trial and error or looking on videohlp to see if they have info on the players in question.
Longevity is multifacited and includes a number of things, a good initial burn reliant on firmware, disc and drive combination, storage, and handling.
As to the "Windata" dvds not much use to us we need the MID code for the discs to see what they are reporting themselves as.
