    -R seem to be the most compatable, early ps2's can't read +R.

    it really depends on your ps2. V1-3 only play -R but V4+ can play either.

    every laser is different and prefers a certain type of media.

    I have a v9 ps2 and the original laser loved ritek G04 4X -R.
    I replaced the laser and found that the new one (same model KHS 400C) hated -R media and preferred +R. so i had to re-backup ALL of my games :(

    the quickest way to check is to back up GTA San Andreas onto both + and - R and play them. You will see the difference immediately.

    Dont let anyone say different.
