not all burners support bitsetting, nor does all the software either for that matter

not all store bought or production dvd's are all that great either, ive run into a few that wouldnt play in some players, it happens

bottom line, make a few,see what works, and stick with it
yes i agree that dvd-r and dvd+r play in alot of dvd players, but when using dvd+r and bitsetting you fill the rest of that 10 percent by setting it to dvd-rom which you can't do with a dvd-r disc.

true not all burners support bitsetting but there's alot that do. also major burning software like nero does, there are others too.

yep there are alot of cheap dvd media out there. gotta make sure you get some good quality very important.

but what i am saying in the end. is that +R media with a dvd burner that supports bitsetting is more compatible then -R

i burn both myself and the +r always does a better job of playing in dvd players.

Evidently it is tough to figure out, as no one seems to know the difference between "+" and "-". I have burned a CD-R-- but CD-R only ever had one format. And it's not the concept that I didn't understand. It's the way that everyone had been saying it.

It's not my intention to argue with you-- I'm not sure where this became a debate.

Do you need to use the software in conjuntion with hardware bitsetting, or can Nero be used for it with any DVD-RW drive?

you need a dvd burner that has the bitsetting option.

nero can only use the setting with a drive that supports it.
