Hi,
I have had a look at the specs for your computer and HP seem to think that you can use either.
VD+RW offers faster writing, better internal linking (a technical obscurity you don't have to worry about), and support for drag-and-drop desktop files, which makes it easy to compose the contents of a disk. DVD+R is a write-once format intended to be more compatible with more DVD players.
If you have a chance buy 1 of each and see which performs the best.
Regards
Mike

You can use either but if I was you I would use the dvd+r discs because if you make your own movies and you decide you don't want to play them on the computer, it will be compatible with your other new dvd players out there if you have one or decide to buy one in the future.

I've seen in the past where dvd-r discs aren't as compatible with regular dvd players.
