DVD-R vs. DVD+R

By Megtek ·
Hey there...

I purchased a DVD burner. I need to use it to make Ghost images. I am using Ghost 2003. I have been using DVD+R DVD's. They work great. I need to buy more and I see DVD-R are a little less expensive Can someone tell me the difference between them?

DVD-R vs. DVD+R

DVD-R is an older version, slower and often not compatible with others. So came out DVD+R, faster and more fun to use, that what makes DVD-R cheaper. But there are still a lot who supports DVD-R, and acoording to Hi-Fi magazine, buying DVD recordersat this time is not wise. The battle between the two is now in home stretch and one of them will be extinct.

They are slightly different technologies.

It is possible that your drive supports both.
Check with the drive manufacture to verify if DVD-R disks are supported for BOTH playback and recording.
