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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
