I was looking for some DVD burners and they all were wierd. Some say DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD - R, DVD - RW and some aid DVD R\RW. What do all the plus and minuses means and stuff.

dvdrhelp.com has a good guide on the competing formats. Basically -r is made by the dvd consortium that also made the dvd format and +r is made by some companys that want their own format.

What's funny is that +Rs made on a Philips burner won't play in a Philips DVD player.
