Just been looking on the tinternet for some record once DVD's and noticed the big price difference in these 2 formats. Does anyone know why one shop was selling 25 DVD -R for £11 and £19 for 25 DVD +R? (they weren't the only ones doing this) I have to use the "+" discs and can't beleive a difference like this!

more people use the dvd-r and more are produced so they are cheaper.

However, the quality varies and a lot of the cheap media tend to give problems with certain writers.

Try SVP communications, click here they are very good. Hope the link is OK

Possibly the DVD+R discs are more expensive to manufacture. DVD-R are recognised by the DVD Forum and came out first. DVD+R still not recognised.
