    i have the sony DW-U14A, depending what im doing i use dvddecrypter, dvd shrink and dvd2one with nero, now i mainly use +Rs but have been using -Rs aswell but all of a sudden whenever i try to burn with -Rs it fails but if i put a +R in it burns fine, any ideas, the -R discs are swisstec, a cheapo brand i know but why would i have successfully burnt 7 so i cant see it being the discs at fault, cheers...

    If the last 7 dvd-r discs that worked are from a different batch than the one that aren't working now,you could try a firmware update.

    Because of newer versions of dvd-r recording standards, some drive's need an update before reading the newer discs.

    If that's not the case, I'd check back to when it started and see if you installed/changed anything around that time.

    Packet writing software can really screw up your burns, Roxio is a known problem for conficting with other software.
    I'd probably close down everthing using msconfig and see if u have an issue.

    I'd check if it isn't just this brand of disc and test on another brand as well.

    It could be any of a whole lot of other problems, but see if any of these work first.
