I have been looking for information as to whether I should use DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL for writing a Blu-ray readable disk.

 

Anybody know which is best (or works / not)?

 

 

I would think that your BlueRay player manual would tell you what kind of discs your player can accept :rolleyes:

What I was looking for was some experience from someone who may have tried to write Blu-ray disks on their mac superdrive and has tried one or the other - I know DVD+R dual layer works fine from actual testing - was curious if anyone's done the same with DVD-R Dual layer.

 

Manual's on commercial readers don't always tell the tale and particularly Sony Blu-Ray players come with little helpful information about reading DVD-9 Dual layer in DVD+R or DVD-R.

 

Have you ever read any really helpful information provided with a Sony commercial product???

I just posted this reply to another post. Hopefully, this answers part of your question:

 

Well, I finally finished editing my 2009 videos and to my surprise, I was able to fit in more than 1 hour and 10 minutes worth of HD videos onto a DL DVD+R. Using the same source file (from step three I described before), I produced a DVD (Std Def) with a single layer DVD-R and Blue ray Disc (High Def) with a double layer DVD+R just to compare the video quality of the final product.

 

The quality of the BR Disc using a DL DVD+R is definitely a lot better, cleaner, and undeniably HD. I guess I expected the quality to deteriorate significantly with the amount of video I'm cramming in one disc... even if it is double layer.
