Check the guide to your DVD player
My LiteOn DVD recorder came with 2 pamphlets that indicated with which brands of which medium it was most compatible. One pamphlet was for CDs and the other DVDs. There were 4 sections in that DVD pamphlet: DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW. The largest section was that of the DVD+R. There were 47 different discs, although some were from the same brand, but there were distinctions between the speeds at which the discs could be recorded, e.g. Nanya DVD+R NANYA CLX 8.0x and NANYA DVD+R NAN YA ALX 16.0x. Further, there were more discs for DVD+RW than for DVD-RW (14 to 6, respectively).
Maybe there was just bias on LiteOn's part, choosing to be more compatible to DVD+R/RW than to DVD-R/RW. Then again, the DVD-R section had 36 discs (36 divided by 47 = 77% comparison). Then again, that's just one DVD recorder from one brand.
In terms of having discs not being able to be burnt, I always (along with an entire online forum of DVD writers) burn at 4.0X. Doesn't take that much longer, and takes away from the whole DVD+R versus DVD-R. Consider that argument abolished. I've burnt both at 4.0x and they're all fine.
Your issue is summed up in looking into the packaging that came with your DVD player. If there is no comparable pamphlet, check the company's website for further support. Other than that, I've said all I can.
