    Depends on what you burner supports. For a dual burner either is OK.

    Some burners are + only or - only. For these type of burners you will need to compatible media.

    DVD- was the orignal DVD format. Some companies did not want to pay royalities to the original developers and as such DVD+ was developed. There are some subtle differences but essentially for everday use they are the same.

    From what I've gathered perusing the internet, DVD-R is compatible on more stand alone DVD players as compared to DVD+R. If you are unsure of what media to use, you can also check out www.videohelp.com. Personally, they both work fine for me and they cost the same in my area, so in essence it is a matter of personal preference depending on one's cirumstantces.
