yes things have changed, and an awful lot of people out there that still have dvd players that happily play about 90% of the disks used in them, and in most cases dvd-r's work just fine,same with dvd+r
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.
