The +R and -R are just different standards. I personally use +R though my drive supports both. I read somewhere -R is more readable on a wider variety of drives though.

I use DVD+RW and rarely DVD+R.... cos my drive only supports one format ;p
I've read that any W format, ie. +RW or -RW, are not the best for archival storage of photos. They do not last as long as the R formats.

cKiang ... I actually read somewhere that +R has better compatibility than -R. Would to do some more research before I burn too many DVDs to backup my photos.

Thanks all for replying.
