    "UNFORMATTED (DVD+RW)" or a simular error to that should i try new DVD cd's ? i am currently using dvd-rw ones

    So are you using DVD+RW or DVD-RW? What is the model of your burner?

    I poked around a little bit and saw some other people who had problems with this drive recognizing media. Seems they had some results by uninstalling the drive in Device Manager and rebooting Windows (XP), then drive gets reinstalled automatically and all is well.

    Another thing you might want to look into is a firmware upgrade. That solves media issues sometimes.

    Did this problem just come up? Is this the first time you tried to burn to a +RW disc?

    you need to find out if your dvd burner supports only dvd-r/rw or dvd+r/rw. google your model and check specs.
