I’m about to buy a DVD burner for my computer.
I see DVD-R and DVD+ burners.
Which of the two formats are expected to be remain the most compatible, if I hand out DVDs to friends?
I got my first DVD burner years ago (2001) which happened to be a Pioneer 103 DVD-r/RW. Later down the road I got the 104. I’ve used both DVD+R and DVD-R and although new players are proclaiming they can play both formats, I’ve found over the years that DVD-R are by far MUCH more compatible all around (with new and old players) than are the DVD+R format. Although the gap is closing with campatibilty with newer DVD players, DVD-R are still much more compatible with older players (before 2002)
Hope this helps
