    There isn't one, nor is there a point. All that matters is that it's a DVD-R.

    Almost all DVD-R's work, so why would we need a compatibility chart?

    Why use DVD+??
    Unless your mom buys all the dvds and she likes +.
    No offense, but if they hardly work, don't buy them.

    I've been using +r's all my life. Just never bought a -r i guess..

    But some people say is "Makes the laser stress out"

    True?

    It is just a myth.

    -r's are the best.

    Oh and If i use a dvd-r from a 99cent store do you think they will work? It is JVC..

    I use DVD+R simply because my DVD burner says DVD+R DL, if it said DVD+/-R DL, then I where using -R, maybe it is a myth but remember that the laser works like the human eye, if you force it to read something that is not well writen at the long way it may cause damage, it is better when the paper (human vision spoking), the light and our eyes are not making an effort to read, at the long way..!!

    If i buy a 100 pack of DVD+R's that are on special at the moment and i get 112 DVD+R's for the price of 100 , so its a good deal... and if i take the 112 DVD+R's that i buy and scribble out the top and bottom of the + so that it looks like a minus in green pen because the discs are green , can i burn them using a hybrid of Nero and IMgBurn i like to call NeoBurn at max speed with the disc text facing up on a sunday morning before 12 ?
