DVD-R or DVD+R?

I have a whole bunch of Weird Al shows, that are in need of being burned. Which one should I use?

Re: DVD-R or DVD+R?

Personally I use DVD-R's because then you have the option of burning the 'Disc At Once'. (Disc At Once: writes the entire disc in one pass; preferred for duplication masters).

Re: DVD-R or DVD+R?

It doesn't matter. Both can fail, both can be good. I prefer DVD+R because it usually has less PIF/PIE errors, but I write on both types.

I guess you are right about that. I think the combination of type of media used, burning application and burner determine the outcome.

Re: DVD-R or DVD+R?

if I recall accurately, DVD-R is the red book standard and DVD+R came later and seems to have better error correction capabilites although not to the red book standards, I have better success using DVD+R; i.e. the discs are compatible with more players
