Blank DVD Media?

I think I screwed up. Are there two types of blank DVD media? DVD- and DVD+? I bought some blank DVD media at Fry's the other day and it won't work with my DVD Recorder. I've got some RW's and they work fine and they are labeled DVD+RW while the new ones I bought that won't work say DVD-R. Help!

And if it doesn't work, anybody interested in a 5 pack of GQ Brand DVD-R's fpor $5? I bought them for $7+Tax.

Yes there are actually four formats, DVD-R/+R and DVD-RW/+RW. Pretty confusing huh? The DVD-R and DVD+R is write-once media. Newer drives will read both, but originally was believed that DVD-R was more compatible with settop DVD players than DVD+R

That's what it was, bought a 5 pack of DVD+R's at Best Buy this morning and it works like a charm.

Got me an external firewire/usb2 TDK indiDVD. Reads/writes all formats. I loves it. 4x is good ... but I bought some Fujifilm discs at Best Buy ... 50 pack for $65 after mail-in rebate (which just came in, btw), and the damn things are only 2.4x discs I checked Fuji's website, and it looks like they don't even have 4x media yet. Or at least they didn't a month ago.

I ran up to Fry's today and I was surprised that they took back the DVD's even with them unsealed (only the box was sealed). Anyway, glad to get that out of the way.
