    Hi all.

    What is the difference between DVD+ and DVD- and which should I use for backing up data?

    What are the intended applications of each?

    Thanks!

    The simple answer: almost none. If you are backing up data both work great, however when it comes to movies and stand alone DVD players the older models have problems reading DVD + R discs.
