    I'm no pro but it would help if you listed what kind of burner, what kind of media you're using, and what programs.

    As you already know your burner only does + R's. It sounds like the burner does not lke the blank media you are using. Go here and you will see what other media others are using w/ that drive. I would recommend the Verbatim's. If you have not done so you might as well update your burner's firmware at the Ricoh website and also update Nero to the current version.
