According to its Specs it is +/- possibly it does not like the media try banother brand I would normally suggest Verbatim but have seen this writer can have isues with that brand might also check for firmware updates

I use Imgburn as my main burner its free and will check for updates it will also confirm what formats you can and cannot burn to
Also if you use it it wil give adetailed log of failures
click here

Put a disc in cd or dvd click on discovery then tools>drive then at bthe bottom click capabilities that will show what you can use or click firmware updates it will say what you have and search for new ones .Personally I would just check if there are any available and try everything else first before updating if ther are any

If it doesn't write to -CD/DVD-Rs there is something seriously wrong.....:-)
