    First i would like to said Sorry if this post had already been posted, but there is like a hundred of posted here. Okay, a lot of people are saying that dvd-r works better than dvd+r, But i've been using dvd+r with swap magic and is working fine. So, which is better? or maybe more harmful to the laser len? thanks.

    i think version 1 through 7 can only read -r, while versions 8+ can read both formats. id say -r because ive yet to see anything not compatable with a -r.

    I should have read before I tried putting my games on dvd+r I went through about 9 coasters, then went out and bought some dvd-r's they work really well.
