DVD format - or +

  tomorrow 16:36 11 Apr 04


Just got myself a DVD writer but need advice.

Had a look on ebay and seen that the blank disks are either + or -. I know there are the two formats and my writer can write both but didn't relies I had to choose between blank + or - dvds.

Which format holds more on a disk and which is more reliable?

It depends what u intend to do with the disks - my DVD player connected to my TV will only read DVD -R but for Disks I intend to use on my PC I use DVD +R as I tried both types out on my new drive. Apart from that can't see much differece between them !

Many dvd writers support higher speeds with plus format disks as does my drive. However I buy plus just because that is the format my tv dvd recorder is able to record on.

Dont go out and buy 50 many online stores sell trial packs so you can try each one and
see which you can play in your player etc.
