DVD Formats? -R +R

Just started copying, sorry backing up, DVDs I have. I have found that the copies made on DVD+R disks will work in my Goodmans and JVC DVD players. But DVD-R's only worked in my JVC player.

Can someone confirm that -R's will never work in my Goodmans player? Or is there something elseI could try to make them work?

I assume from now on I can buy +R's and have no problems as there is no difference in quality etc anyway?

Final question - what make type of disks would people recommend for backing up existing DVD's?

What make of disc are you using?

It sounds like your Goodmans doesn't like -R's. Is it a newish player? Most new players should play both.

What software do you use to backup?

I use DVD-R virtually all the time. They work in all players I've tried them in, I've never tried a Goodmans though. The brands I've used are DataWrite DVD-R Classic Grey 8x - Datasafe DVD-R 8x - BulqPaq DVD-R 4x - Philips DVD+RW.
Thanks for your reply Rayman.

Strange, I tried a couple of -R DVD's in the Goodmans and they didn't seem to work. However I thought I would have another go and waited a bit longer this time and they did play. Therefore it can play both. Don't know what the problem was the first time. It is a new DVD player as well. :)

The disks I used were good ones, as they were the ones from this sites incentive :)
