How to Copy DVD+R to DVD-R

What’s the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R?

DVD+R, ‘DVD plus R” was created by the “DVD+RW Alliance”. DVD+R discs are expensive in today’s market, and are not burnable by 1st generation “plus-type” burners, which were designed only for the DVD+RW rewriteable discs. DVD+R cannot copy the descrambling codes found on DVD video discs, so commercial discs cannot easily be duplicated. DVD+R drives have recently reached the same maximum recording speeds as DVD-R drives. Once you write some data to +R disc, you can also add some more data later, again and again. but you can not erase the data once you written.

DVD-R was created by the DVD Forum.  The most common DVD-R is a write­-once 4.7gb “general purpose” disc, which is roughly equal to 120-minutes of standard playing lime. Once recorded, a DVD-R can be played on most home DVD players (Advertised as compatible with 90% home DVD players). General purpose DVD-R media is currently the cheapest & most common, and the newest DVD-R drives write at up to 4x.
