I just bought an LG 4040B (x 4 speed) multi-format DVD writer this weekend (firmware is upto date - v300). I am having problems trying to burn to DVD+R & RW media; Nero 5.5 won't let me burn to +RW only +R (it says incompatible media type). I also use DVD X Copy Xpress which will burn to both but only the +RW type will play in my pc player and TV player, x box etc. As the cost of DVD discs are really expensive I would like to hear from anyone having similar problems as this ordeal is costing me a small fortune. The discs I have used are Memeorex; I have bought some Verbatim today and will try again tonight as after reading a few newsgroups I am realising that it is not as straight forward as burning to CD's!
