    I don't understand why there are two different DVDs, and what would be the
    result of using either or both in the same recorder?

    ....but, IIRC, -RW discs must be completely formatted before use
    whereas +RW formats a new disc 'on the fly'; so the former need a few
    minutes preparation before they can be used.

    Is it possible to burn "multisession" on DWD-RW also?
