DVD + or - ??

  roygbiv 08:15 25 Jul 2006

Now I have bought a DVD re-writer, I have been told that DVD readers (on TV`s) read either - disc`s or + disc`s (unless they are MULTI format)
So any advice , as to which one is the most popular ??....Alan

I think I read somewhere that more standalone players accept the - format.

Best cover the spectrum and go multi format.

Are you talking of disks or players?

I should imagine that the negative is the most popular as they were on the market first; but usually each can read the other. however note usually!!

I am with Diodorus Siculus on this one I have found that some (older) DVD players will not read the + format have not come across any that won't read -.
