DVD-R refers to a DVD you can record data to, but only once. After your data is burned onto the disk, you may retrieve the files from multiple computers. These discs hold about 4.7 GB of information. You can burn files on these disks only once; they are not reusable. DVD-R is the more common format. Some DVD drives or applications may not support recording to DVD+R.
