I have one older dvd player, one recorder and one new DVR which plays dvd dual layer +R's as well as -R( I think). I looked around and cannot find any DVD-DL-R's for sale? Only +R's. Would these still work on older DVD players and if not why are there not DVD-DL-R's?

Thanks! I just can't find them in the brick and mortar stores locally. Nice to know they exist.

Not a problem to help you locate them online, I always found the +R DL's to be cheaper for some reason myself, and you're right you practically can't find -R DL's in stores.

The way that a lot of people mostly use -R for Single Layer, that didn't seem to catch on with Dual Layer media as there is a wider selection with +R DL.

Because it took the -R camp a lot longer to get their DL discs together (and still seem to have layer break issues), thus +R DL took hold as the default.
