Default dvd- and dvd+ compatibility

I bought a dvd+rw/r drive with dvd+rw discs from pc world. I tried to copy data from a dvd-R to a dvd+rw using 'Easy cd + DVD Creator 6' but it always get stuck on 66% when preparing data. Is this because the dvd's are not compatible or is there a problem with cd creator? Would i be better off with a dvd- RW/R drive?

Would appreciate some advice

Almost every drive made in the last year, be it DVD- or + will read the others format. It's the buring that makes the difference.

Do you have enought temp storage on your machine for the data you are moving? How long does it take to get stuck? (5 minutes 2 hours somthing like that) What is the data type you are moving? Are you using packet writing or direct burn?
