I have a computer running Windows XP and the above DVD writer. It is claimed to be compatible with both DVD +R/RW and _R/RW discs, but it handles the minus format well it has always failed to record onto +R discs. The process runs well until it tries to close the disc after writing then it crashes and the disc becomes unreadable. The same problem occurs with both XP format then drag and drop and Nero express. Any ideas?
