I can't get my rewritable DVD to work

  Help me please 12:46 02 Nov 2009

Hi there, I have a compaq laptop with a DVD re-writer in it/logo on it. I want to save tonnes of images to a disk. The person in the shop said the DVDs I bought: Verbatim DVD+R would be able to do this but when I try to either drag the folder in windows explorer or 'move to' it says windows has encountered an error copying these files. I did lots last week with a re-writable CD fine. So what have I got to do to make this DVD work?

Thanks, Joanne
