What are the technical differences between the two?

Does DVD+r disc have a different way that data is stored on the disc to DVD-R.

or is the difference like NTFS and FAT 32 format HDs?

Just wondering because when any one asks me the difference, i can't explain in a single sentence.

I have a few pioneer 106s and burn to both +r and -r discs with no problems.

If you want to know all the technical details/differences then I am sure you can download some whitepapers from both sides.
