Search function is bringing up too many posts that don't answer this simple question.
Just bought a spindle of DVD+Rs by mistake. My drive burns this format ok but what i want to know is: what is the difference between the two formats, is one 'better' than the other and is formatting video onto a DVD+R likely to compromise compatibility with DVD players?

Thanks.
Didn't realise Philips developed the +R format. That bodes well for compatibility in my case as the system the discs are for is a synced set of Philips DVDPro-180.
