    i dont know if this subject has been touched, but i thought i'd share it with you guys.

    up to now i've always heard to use DVD-R with imgburn, or similar software...
    it is true that when i've used DVD+R with imgburn they NEVER work. EVER. wont even load. but,
    i have discovered, or at least think i have discovered, (or at least first to post) that you CAN in fact use
    DVD+R, BUT, you have to burn using Nero Burning Rom. i'm 10/10 already. no glitches at all. i might even go
    as far to say that i think my Quantum of Solace even loaded a little faster.

    i am using nero 7 and burning using a Sony DRX-830U.
    the discs are DYNEX DVD+R... and they're rewritable. i am going to try burning over a game and see if it works.
    if it does, this will save me the hassle of burning a crappy game then getting stuck with it.

    if someone else could try this, i would really appreciate it.

    Well excuuuse me Mr. Wizard. lol. i kid, i kid. seriously though, i read these forums religiously and i haven't seen anything on this.
    i don't think the average person is aware of Nero's fantastic auto-bitsetting feature. therefore, i find this post to be of extreme importance and
    DEMAND THAT IT BE STICKIED IMMEDIATELY!!

    I could have told you this long ago. It's been said at least a hundred times before that you can use dvd+r but you must use an app that either defaults too or allows you to change the bit setting of dvd-r

    so i got some Verbatim+R's DVD's but i'm thinking about take them back... cause i would rather burn with dvd-r's even through i got one game with a dvd+r to work. and what's odd is i got it to work through the disc menu with out cios corps installed (and i'm serious too) so should i keep them? or should i just get my money back and also i use imgburn BTW.

    You can use bitsetting in Imgburn, you just need to dig through the options to turn it on. Look for the option to set the booktype to DVD-ROM. It's under tools - drive - change book type.

    Also, for modchip users it's usually not required to bitset +R media.

    Already known, IMGBurn works with DVD+Rs with the right settings (both hardware and software). It does for me.

    IMGBurn worked with the default settings for me with Memorex DVD+Rs.
    For every game I have burnt.

    Looks like your only bet is with this tool. http://www.plak.net/dvdplustool/

    Only thing I could find about bitsetting on the mac, and the site claims it wont work with a superdrive, but I'm guessing older drives might have been -R only. Perhaps Apple should stop throwing around that "it just works" line.
