some dvd players only support the +r format, so that would be your best bet

Hello....I only use +R media....specifically FujiFilm....they seem to be very high quality and from time to time you buy a 50 pack spindle at Best Buy or Super K-Mart for $14.99. You can sometimes find a good deal on eBay too. Most DVD players now play both formats...I've noticed most older DVD players, though, will play both.

I was using - but was getting pauses every so often so i changed to + and never had a pause since
That was about 6 months ago.

I think 'LilSiN' has it backwards.

Some older DVD players only like DVD-R.

...let's have a look how it looks SIX (6) YEARS after burning - here is a random result of +R media tested on a brand new LiteOn burner. Remember the limits for MAX average PI/PIF errors are 150/10.... Burned on LG 4163B as Booktype DVD-ROM. Otherwise NO COMMENT! I want to buy at least thousand of such media (Ricoh DVD+R Gold, Non-Printable 8x) more....

Panasonic is a touchy brand of dvd players. I had one that wouldn't play any DVD+R
