What is the difference between a DVD+RW and DVD-RW? Multi-recorder?

I have a DVD Multi-recorder drive and I was wondering what was the difference between DVD+/-RW. I was wondering which one was right for me and which one that my dvd burner can burn. (Since it is multi recorder, can it burn both?)

    dvd rom stands for Digital Versatile Disk Read Only Memory these come in two type dvd - r and dvd + r the only difference is which node it switches on or off certain dvd writer for home use + or - r computer writers will read both a dwd rw (DVD Re Writable) is like the old floppies it can be used again again only if the multi-session tab is left open when you write to it otherwise it will write once only
