The following is from the DVD Format section of our DVD Cookbook

The war is over - Multi-Format DVD Burners RULE the day!
In 2003 Sony broke from the DVD+RW camp and introduced the first multi-format DVD burner. Now DVD recording format is no longer an issue you have to worry about. We have many different manufacturers of DVD burners and all the top selling and best performing drives are multi-format. Single format drives are still available, but they are mostly close-outs and loss leaders.

While the different formats still exist, the war is essentially over. Both side now realize that no clear winner will emerge and that all of the new formats must be embraced. Even more important – independent 3rd party testing has determined that both –R and +R disks will play in almost every current DVD player on the market. Some tests at first appear to declare one format more compatible, but once the older legacy players are removed from the equation, both formats have compatibility ratings from 95 - 99%.
