    I just read the question about "inscriptible" DVD's. But I bought two packages of DVd's = one says DVD-R, recordable, inscriptible, and the other says DVD+R, inscriptible.

    Does this mean that the -R can have music burned on it - or exactly what is the difference? Thanks.

    A blank DVD regardless of type is just a larger capacity medium, generally speaking. Both CD and DVD can hold audio and video files, along with general data. For descriptions go HERE. This links you to the GLOSSARY tab at the top of the page, and you'll find definitions for most of what you need.

    When it comes to quality of media, there are no substitutes. Buy the "el-cheapo" brands and you'll get similar results. Trust us.

    The Enscriptable properties have little bearing on format, as this happens on the opposite layer. Your lightscribe drive should handle most formats generally available. Post back if you need more.

    - R or "Dash" was the first DVD format.
    Some fellas did not want to pay for the right to use the dash R format, so they can up with +R.
    Now you have the Blu Ray vs. HD DVD format battle.
