OK, so I got my new 360 - and without doing any research I went and bought a spindle of 25 DVD-R DL only to come back and read that the 360 won't read -R, and that it only works with +R - is this true? Has anyone burned successfully on -R DL? I've been trying to research this for the last couple hours - and still don't have a 100% answer (although i'm leaning towards -R won't work).

Can someone please confirm? I already opened the pack and won't be able to return them so I wanna make sure I can't use them before I go out and buy a +R

Even if you opening the pack you can probably exchange at the store you bought it at...

It HAS to be DVD +R DL.

And Verbatim is recomended since some drives are picky... and they are the only ones that really make quality DVD+R DL... none of the manufacturers have really figured it out and discs don't work or have a much shorter life (months instead of years)
