So, what's the difference between the "+R" and the "-R"?
When writeable DVDs were just coming on the market, there was a war of conflicting standards much like there was when HD-DVD/Blu-Ray came on the market. In the end, drive manufacturers just started building combo drives that could read/write all or nearly all of the different standards.

The difference is mostly in the media. I find that +R discs tend to be the most compatible with set-top DVD players, but YMMV.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
