DVD + or -?

I've just bought a Fujitsu laptop and its prompting me to create the recovery discs, which I intend to do, however the message says it 'recommends' I create them on DVD+R discs.
I have some DVD-R which I used on my old machine, are these no good? The drive will burn both formats.
Thanks.

Can't imagine why you can't use DVD-R unless the DVD drive will only read DVD+R. I know some DVD players are picky and will only read one format.
