    Default when do I use DVD-R and DVD+R? in which DVD Players?

    I have a little problem with this question: "Which DVD R to use? + or - ?"

    If someone could help me I would like to know wich of these is the best one to record, the differences, the DVD players where they play the best (brands like SONY, PHILIPS)

    For egxample I can only play DVD+R in my SONY DVD Player. but in my Philips DVD Player I can play DVD+R and DVD-R.. but then, my friend can't play DVD+R in his SONY DVD Player.. Odd!

    Just use the one that works for you the best. If you player prefer + then use that.

    My Sony NS900 works with both - and + as well as two other players. I tend to use + discs as my first burner was + only. I have stack of +RW's.

    You can check your player at this site.

    What model of burner do you have?

    If your lucky and have one that can use bitsetting software then you can use DVD+R disks and just set the book type to DVD-ROM which should allow you to play the DVD in ALL players.
