Problem with DVD+RW

I have just purchased a Pioneer DVR-106D writer.

I copied all My Documents using Roxio 5 to a DVD+RW this worked - when I put this in my HP laptop DVD CD-RW it wouldn't read the DVD. The software won't let me close the session and my head hurts from banging it against the brick wall.

have you tried installing roxio 5 to the laptop

You shuoldn't need to install Roxio 5 on the laptop.

What error messages do you get?? Esp when trying to close the session??

The software won't let me close the session I've tried. When you press record 3 options appear close session is greyed out! I've tried all the software options, searching the menus etc but at no point does it let yet change this. By the way I'm using UDF is this correct?

Has anybody else copied data onto a DVD+RW and then been able to read it in an ordinary DVD drive in another PC?

If the answer to this is yes what software have you used?

  The Sack 13:14 06 Aug 2003

Yes and Nero 5.5. Even my standalone DVD plaver sees the directories on the disc.

I have the same DVD Burner and had some problems with DVD-R disks until I flashed the drive with Pioneers latest Firmware. Since then all appears to be fine.

BTW you dont have to close a session on a DVD+RW thats one of the benefits of the format.
