    Some standalone players have trouble with dvd-r and dvd+r.Some might like -,some like +/most of them like both.

    All the stand alones that I play mine on Like the plus format over the dash format.

    Poorer media/burning too fast are the usual culprits. Try slowing it down.

    What brand of media are you using and how fast are you burning: Example- sony-4x,burning at 4x.
