    Ok heres the q.. ive always backed up my movies using -r's and i have a friend whos.. well.. not smart with computers and couldnt figure out the whole backing up thing.. so he gave me his blank media.. its +r.. i have a DVD+-R dual layer burner.. so i [bold]assume[/bold] that i can burn to them.. now would my dvd player reject these by any chance? and if so is there a way i can force-format these to be recognized as -r's?

    thanks for helping a newbie..

    Many burning programs have an option to "Booktype DVD+R(W) to DVD-ROM". This should increase +R compatibility with players. I personally have never used this because my DVD player plays all formats. I know Nero has it and so does DVD Decrypter.
