I am sure this question has been asked & anwered many times before so I would just appreciate a link or links to the answer(s). I am totally confused over the various formats DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW. I am looking to buy a reasonably priced DVD recorder that will play DVD's (all formats?) CDs VCDs SVCDs etc. Can you please direct me to a good simple source of information? From the little I have read I realise that the format debate is fraught with bias and I have no wish to stir up trouble. I would just appreciate a little help. Thanks for reading this.
