    I believe there's another thread out that contains the answer to your question, but I'll give it a shot.

    They are two competing formats that accomplish pretty much the same things.

    The DVD Forum http://www.dvdforum.org/ is the standard maker for the DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM discs. I believe that standard is a little older than the DVD+R format. The DVD Forum is comprised of 212 companies including AOL-Time Warner, Sony, Apple, Toshiba, Nikon, NEC, Motorola, Iomega, and IBM.

    The DVD+RW Alliance http://www.dvdrw.com/ is the standard bearer for the DVD+R and DVD+RW standards. The DVD+Alliance has 50+ members including Microsoft, Dell, HP, Philips Electronics, Sony, and Yamaha.

    According to the DVD+RW Alliance,
    Hope that helps.
