Difference Between Dvd +r And Dvd -r


New Member
I know that there are two types of DVD's +R and -R, but what is the difference in these two DVD's? Does it matter which one you use to burn something from your computer or the content you burn on the DVD?

I need to burn some things from my computer so I it would only be correct for me to use the right DVD type, so please advise.

A long time ago I had read something about it. Now forgot. You can google it. From what I vaguely remember, DVD-R was suitable for video DVD while +R was suitable for data. But honestly, can't bet on that.
