DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.
DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 91% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-RW is a rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 74% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.


DVD+R/DVD+RW has some better features than DVD-R/DVD+RW such as lossless linking and both CAV and CLV writing.
DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 86% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+RW is a rewritable format and is compatible with about 74% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.

I don't believe there is a difference in CD-R/CD+R's but I could be wrong

...and it's the idea same in CD's. read all about it at www.plextor.com.
I believe the - ('minus') CD standard came along last and is most common.
2 cents: i'd my spend my brain cells learning the 7 network layers.

Just a different format.

When it all started two different groups tried to become the standard.

Both camps hung in there.

Most new recorders will handle both types.
