DVD Decrypter problem

    I have burnt DVD to my HD with DVD Shrink but when DVD Decrypter launched it won't write to DVD-R, but it will write to DVD+RW. I am putting in a DVD and not a CD, any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, my burner is a HP DVD Writer 300n.

    Also the message I get when trying to burn to a DVD-R is "Device not Ready (Medium not Present). I have just burnt a DVD using DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter onto a DVD-RW and it worked perfectly, just the problem with the DVD-R. Thanks

    simple, its a +R only writer. It can only write to +R and +RW discs. it cant write to -R or -RW discs.

    Thanks for your help, I didn't even realise there was a difference. When I purchased the DVD's I asked the salesman about + and - DVD's, he said there was no difference. He sounds like a newbie as well. Thanks again.
