The confusion of DVD-R vs. DVD+R
I have wondered for a while what the difference between the two writable DVD standards are. VideoHelp.com's What is DVD? anwsers most fo those questions with details about each formats technical details.

Briefly, DVD-R is more compatible but DVD+R is technically superior. Also, apparently Macs can only read DVD-R. So the recommendation is DVD-R for movies and Macs, DVD+R for data.
