I don't think it makes any difference at all. I use both with no problems.

As my DVD rewritter can burn to either.... I prefer the "DVD-R" as they are cheaper ;-)

True - it really makes no difference. Just check which your DVD player accepts.

I use both and both work just fine.

-R are supposed to be compat with more players then +R but there's not much between them..

What perhaps is more important is the quality of the disc and whether the brand is compatible with your dvd rw. I have a Plextor PX-716A. If I use Philips dvd's, I produce 2 out of 3 coasters. Having checked on the Plextor home pages, TDK and Vertbatim are recommended...and since using that media, I've not had a single failure.

I would say, though, that Plextor recommend dvd +r for the PX-716A.
