    I don't consider my 10 year old Sony DVD player (DVP-NS725P) a late model DVD player but yes my exposure is mostly limited to my family and the few people (band members) that I had supplied videos on +R to without any issues.

    I seem to recall that you definitely had to be sure to finalize the +R disks otherwise you might have issues but I could definitely be wrong there since it's been quite a while since I was following the -R/+R discussions.

    LOL. Considering that the DVD format is almost 20 years old, a 10-year old player could be considered a late model by some standards. If you've never encountered compatibility issues then consider yourself lucky. One thing I've found is that the cheaper the player, the more likely it is to be compatible with both types of DVDs. I seem to recall that my $1600 Marantz player didn't like DVD+R discs but a $30 player made in China had no problems with them.
