Manufactured DVDs use neither.

 

The DVD specification is written by the DVD Forum . This specification is for manufactured discs, not recordables.

 

The DVD forum also maintains the spec on DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM.

 

The DVD+R(W) format is not part of the forum spec. Philips and Sony, though they were part of the forum, support this on the side.

Let explain a little more. We have some DVD discs that are used for programming NAV systems into Lincoln cars. The programming files are on DVD. Now I was told that the most popular format(if that's the right word) is the -(dash) format. So I think the DVD has to be recorded in either + or -. So if I burn the copies in the + format and the cars are looking for dash they won't work. We will be shipping these discs to dealers as far away as Montana, and people are soooo impatient nowadays. Is there anyway in Windoze to look at the attributes and see either the + or -. Kcbass

yes,

 

http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/ is a freeware program that identifies the format, the maker and the characteristics of recordable DVDs.

 

It links out to a web file for updates to its database. This will tell you (even if the disc label doesn't) what format disc you have.

 

Another great site is http://www.videohelp.com for general information.
