between DVD-R's and DVD+R's.
Just the format. Most new drives will read or write either. And I believe (-) R's are older and (+) R's are newer. I dunno all about it, I know mine is + R and thats about it /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
I'm not really sure either, but I think -R is limited in record speed, and not completely compatible everywhere. My old vaio had a -r writer, and while it was nice, it was agonizingly slow sometimes. My new Vaio has a +/-R writer, and it's much faster at +R.
I bought a +R burner for my home system and have burned one a couple movies with it. Verbatim DataLifePlus discs work great, but the other brand I had didn't.
I bought 50 -R blank discs, too. Now they work slow on my vaio, and not at all on my home system... Not ready to plunk down the change for a spindle of +R writable discs yet, though. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
