DVD-R or DVD+R Which is better..

I'm not a computer whizz so this may seem a stupid question to some but which format is better. I have used both +R and -R DVD's and I really cant tell any difference between them. Can anyone help ?

What luckywolf says is a lie. There's no quality difference, only if you have a dual layer dvd (wich i assume you don't have?. The big difference is really that the + ones are harder for the player to read and if you play to many of them it could wear out the laser. That's why they're a little bit cheaper than the - ones. I'm sorry, I'm not so good on english me neither. Hope this helped you out!

DVD+R is a little better,it have a better signal resolution,and the mother disk of it can be made from more easily.the digital formats on both disks are different and compatible,however now the most are DVD_+R,so you donot need to worry about that

Commonly more DVD players are better at reading -Rs than +Rs. What I mean by this is that a lot of DVD players do -Rs rather than +Rs. You'll still find some DVD readers that do +Rs only so make sure to look out for that. Newer ones are capable of both formats easily, and there are some formatting techniques, but other than that there isn't a real difference. You should make sure your computer can read -R and or +R and make sure to take steps if the reader isn't working right. Same with your DVD players, get one to handle both formats if you are making DVDs for that.
