It will burn to either DVD+R or DVD-R. Can you say more about the issues you're having?

Using Nero V7 essentials suite which came with the drive. When going to Burn the DVD it goes through the process and either get error incorrect media or there will be nothing burnt on the DVD have tried DVD-R imitation brand, bit of a pain.

CDR are fine but copying a DVD is a pain.

Thanks marvin42 for your reply

Killo Bite i had a similar problem with a Teac DVD writer i was making coasters for a while i eventually got in touch with Teac support and they sent me a list of supported media for that drive that they had bench tested and touch wood i have had no problems since changeing the media. I have allso noticed on other forums that it is generaly noted that the better the disc is the less coasters you get cheapest is not allways the best route.I have found these very reliable.
