Actualy there are 4 formats
DVD-R
DVD-RW
DVD+R
DVD+RW

And there is a difference between "+" and "-".
Some devices work with DVD-R and DVD-RW and cannot read disk written with DVD+R.
So read the lable of the device.

If it burns DVD+RW it will burn DVD+R
If it burns DVD-RW it will burn DVD-R

There are some neat devices which support all 4 formats.
