    ok well the ones that I say work the best are dvd+r...someone else who has more experience may have a better opinion but I have used dvd+r with my sis burner when my nieces and nephews get a hold of my dvd's and they work flawlessly even in my xbox which hates certain regular discs

    From what I understand, standalone DVD players (ones used for movies only) usually support dvd-r rather than dvd+r and for computers dvd+r is more common.
    I've heard that dvd+r is somewhat better as they are less prone to errors and such, but I'm not 100% sure about which type of dvd is supported by the standalone players.

    I've used both dvd-r and dvd+r sucessfully with my burner (LG 4040B) and stand alone player.

    I have a Nec ND2500A or something like that which burns both fine, I tend to find the -R discs around more though so I buy them and so far those have all been readable in the other DVD drives on other machines
