    Urgent! Verbatim DVD-R or DVD+R Lightscribe?

    Hi guys,

    Staples (American store) is selling Verbatim DVD-R and DVD+R Lightscribe for 13$ for a pack of 30. I guess it's really worth it, but the problem is that the DVD-R are out of stock and only the DVD+R are available (but running out soon too!). So should i get the DVD+R? Do you have an idea if they work better, worst or same as the DVD-R?

    DVD-R are made in India.
    DVD+R are made in Taiwan and India.



    Thanks guys!

    -R typically works best, but the +R should still work fine

    What kind of issues do they encounter?

    If i go with DVD+R, do i burn them as is, or do i need to set the book-type to -rom?

    The -r from India must have improved then. I've burnt 25 games now and no problems whatsoever. But I think it also has to do with how many processes people are running in the background while burning.

    Vanylapep, go ahead and get the -r's made in India. I have no problems with them. With the +r's, just use programs default, as is. Imgburn @ 4x.
