    These are just two different formats. Either one will work. If you find compatability problems with one type, you can always try the other. Booktyping a DVD+R can make it compatable with more players. Your burner needs to support this though. Basically this turns the +R disc into a DVD-ROM which is the most compatable format.

    When you enable booktyping your burner will write a bit of data at the start of the +R disc. The player sees this and plays it as a DVD-ROM disc. Just like a commercial DVD is played.
