    what brand media are you using? Also, there is very little difference between +R and -R. -R is compatable with more dvd players, but most newer ones play both.

    Datawrite Red (whether v2 or not) are very cheap/poor media , I'd suggest Ritek G04 as your next purchase ;-)

    And as to -R or +R , it is fairly irrelevant these days...

    *Trust me mate*

    Tried & tested loads of media... it is very important !
    (cheap media often gives outer edge errors , freezing or skipping in final chapters like)

    Peace ! : ]-~
