    Think of +Rs and -Rs as 2 competing formats but both will do the same job. The format is only important if your burner can burn only one (i.e., +R/+RW) but not the other. If you have a dual-format burner (i.e., it says +R/+RW and -R/-RW), you won't even have to worry. Dual layer is another format which allows you to burn on dual-layer discs (9GB) like the commercial movies. Most people still burn on single-layer (4.7GB) DVDs because they are only 40 cents a piece compared to $6 for D/L DVD blanks. You need a D/L drive to burn D/L discs.
