    Can anyone explain to me what it's the difference between this three
    DVD formats:

    1) DVD+Ram
    2) DVD-R/DVD-RW
    3) DVD+R/DVD+RW

    (about items 2 and 3, I would like to know what's the difference
    between the "-" and the "+" format, not the difference between the "R"
    and the "RW" type).

    Thank you very much!

    They are just three different non-compatible DVD recording and playback
    formats (different formats for laying the pit tracks down on the disc). The
    latest DVD recorders combine several of these formats in one player so you
    have a choice.
