dvd burner

By domapo2 ·
Am interested in buying a dvd burner, I see some are +R and some are -R. I realize these are different formats but am wondering if there is a real difference other than that as why one might be a better buy over the other. No on I talk to seems to know anything about them. Thanks Marge

Go with -R for two reasons. The media is cheaper and -R discs are compatible with more models of set top players. Go to to learn more than you wanted to know.
