    some do and some don't.It normally says on the box what it can read, or sometimes it's silk screen printed on the front of the unit.

    +RW doesn't need finalising
    -RW does need finalising
    both + and - R need finalising.

    Everybody I've given a disk too has been able to play it.

    + and -RW can be initialised to be used again.
