    I have made some home movies using a digital video camera, have transfered to pc and edited but I now want to store the original un edited video files on DVD.

    Does it matter if I store it on DVD+R or -R

    As you may have read ,there seems to be some issue regarding DVD's .Some seem to deteriate, I know I did one a few years ago and it played OK at the time . It went into storage for just over a year and when I played it again it froze half way through . I know I used a budget disk ,I dont know if that was the cause .All my original captures from camcorder are stored on a USB external drive . I bought a case/power supply for about £24 and fitted a 80gig hard drive in . Now I backup to this drive and can transfer stuff from PC to Pc. You cannot leave them on your PC ,they take up to much space and ,of course if you get a HD failure you end up losing the lot.So , the only sugestion is , you could buy an external drive kit.
