I dont see a difference between DVD+R & DVD-R. Can someone explain and which is better?
There is a Glossary section on this site that gives you the definitions of key words that are used on this site. That includes DVD-R and DVD+R.
Bellow are links to look at...

DVD+R ---> http://www.afterdawn.com/glossary/terms/dvdplusr.cfm
Plus this has been asked and discussed multiple times which you can find these threads by using the search feature of the site which is at the top of the forum.

"Multiple" is an understatement.
Personally I think the most notable difference is that +R and +R DL can be booktyped to DVD ROM with certain PC burners to improve player compatibility. That becomes less an issue with the newer players though. Other than that both formats are round and shiny and if the PC supports the format, it doesn't make a whole lot of difference. Be sure to use quality media. Some equipment like standalone recorders only use one format. As for myself, I started buying +R and never quit.
