I never took an interest in the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R. The first box of writable DVD I bought (at Telehuset or whatever it is called, the locals will know which I mean) was labeled DVD+R, and they worked reasonably well, except one of them got trashed. Still, 4 out of 5 worked. Before the weekend I bought a single DVD-R (at Expert), but the DVD burner would not even acknowledge that there was anything in the drive. So today I went and bought a DVD+R disk again (once more at Expert). I was shocked to pay almost 150 kroner (more than 22 dollar!) for a blank DVD. That's sick. I can understand why there was no price tag on it! The disk worked, though. I'll never again buy a disk without asking for the price though. I thought these things were kinda standardized.
