disagree  Nigel Skipper (X): The original convention with cd's was cd worm (write once, read many) shortened to cd-r, however using the same terminology for dvd's is dangerous since there are both dvd-r and dvd+r standards and they are not compatible. Dvd-w is the burner.

  -> Vad man än må tycka om terminologin, så används den i praktiken, både på cd-skivornas omslag och i annonser. Det där med +/- får nog användaren själv hålla koll på. I detta fall skulle varje annan beteckning bli lång och krånglig.
