    I’ve been lurking in this board’s forums for few weeks and I’ve seen several post on what is the difference between –R and +R recording. What I have not seen is what is the difference between the discs themselves. What makes it a disc – and another +? Is there a way to change a batch of - discs to + disk and Vise-Versa? As you can guess, I’m new to this and I purchased a bunch of disk that are not compatible with one of the units that I want to play them on. - Thanks

    It similar to VHS, Beta. They are different formats of recording a DVD Video.
