doesn't make any sense to you please let me know and I will try to

With so many different formats — DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-ROM — how do users know which DVD format is compatible with their existing systems, and why are there so many different formats for DVDs? The following information sheds some light on DVD's different flavors, the differences between them and the incompatibility issues that the differing technologies have sprouted.

Plus or Minus - What's The Difference?
The different variations on the term DVD (e.g. +R, -R, -ROM, and so on) describe the way data is stored on or written to the disc itself. These are called physical formats.

Perform a compatibility check of the Disk DVD whether the computer is capable of reading the media type. Usually, disks movies are readable on DVD players, computer game Disks on computer drivers, and game in Disks on game consoles. Observe the disk to acquire the detail requirements of what type of decoder device is capable of display.
