I have been told that a DVD ±RW drive is capable of burning to -R and +R disks, is this right? I always thought that a ±RW drive would only burn to ±RW disks.

No such thing as a ± disk.

Disks are either + or - - they are competing formats. ± means it supports both + and -.

Thanks for your response PaulB2005 what I meant was can a DVD ±RW drive write to +R or -R disks

Yes - both. "± means it supports both + and -."

There were/are some burners that can only write to R disks (+, -, or both), but can't burn to RW disks.

But if it can write to RW, it will be able to write to R also.
