DVD-R or DVD+R - Which One Is Better?

DVD-R or DVD+R - Which One Is Better?The capacity of both DVD-R and DVD+R is the same - 4.7GB. So, why do DVD+R and DVD-R coexist?

Originally, Computer DVD Drives were either +R or -R

Many years ago your computer’s DVD drive would have been either +R or –R. In the last several years every recordable drive has been cross-compatible to be able to use either/or.

Some people have always used +R media and prefer to stick with it so we offer both types for DVD Printing and DVD Duplicating / DVD Burning.

Remember this simple rule to know which DVD you need:

  • - for Video
    If it's for video (with a first play, menu etc.) you should select DVD-R
  • + for Pictures
    If the use will be for images, data files etc. (not Video) then you can select DVD+R media OR if you are not sure, select DVD-R as this is the most common of all.
