DVD re-writer will not record to DVD disc

Is anyone able to help me?
I have an Asus DVD re-writer with lightscribe. The problem is that the drive will read DVD and CD it will burn to CD but it will not burn to DVD-R or DVD+R. I have tried updating the firmware but still no success. Can anyone help or do I need to buy a new DVD re-writer?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the burn laser for the DVD side has failed, I had this problem a few months ago and simply replaced the drive with a new one. They are cheap and easy to install. Simply remove the old drive, note the jumper setting and set the same on the new one, slot into place and re-attatch the cables. Re-boot and windows should find new hardware and you will be up and running. Took me all of 20 mins from start to finish.
