Forgot to poost this as well,

DVD Identifier - Your DVD, HD DVD & Blu-ray Companion

Nice little utility to see who the disks are actually made by.

There are some older DVD players like my old National Panasonic that will only play DVR-R.
However, If you have DVD+R single or DL then with imgburn this is what you do:

Tools>Drive>Change Book Type
Select your Player model (eg. LG)
Change for DVD +R OR DVD +R DL media

Select DVD-ROM

Your DVD +R disks will then be burnt so that they will play on your DVD Player
