dvd-rw or dvd-r... depending on what type of disc drive you have... if you have a dvd-rom drive your computer will not be able to read a dvd-ram disc... dvd ram is a rewritable disc so you can copy new data over old data... dvd-rom is not rewritable so you cannot erase or copy new data over old... sounds like it is time to upgrade your disk drive to a dvd-rw... this will be able to read both... dvd ram is great for making home movies... if you blow a shot you can erase and do it over... dvd rom is great for info. or files you never want to erase or copy over... hope this helps or makes sense... i do not claim to be a computer wiz...

if u have windows xp , u can just go to MY COMPUTER and EXPLORE , drag n drop files or a whole compilation to your burner drive , with an empty dvd , and it will burn it automatically on it , wont give u the dvd-r or dvd+r bullcrap , but u have to know if your dvd burner supports both formats , otherwise use one of the other to burn your dvds ................hope that helps

they are just different types of technology. DVD+R are more compatible with dvd players.
