    I'm using YAOSM and thought I would buy a dvd+/-rw to use when I'm going to play with Trucha Signer. Does it matter if I buy + or -?

    ummm if i remember correctly it depends on your computer. dells(i think) run +R's. everything else burns on -R's. i think.

    Thanks alot. Guess I'm going to buy dvd+rw because Tanas work and digitalforums dvd-rw don't.

    Digitalforums: I'm using Traxdata dvd+r 8x and burning them in 2x. (if you want normal dvd r) Mine work just fine.

    I have some SONY DVD+RW and a Pioneer DVR-109. My Wii hates them.

    I say DVD-RW would be the best bet.
