Is it a DVD writer? The only reason I ask is early (and maybe some more recent) DVD writers were usually either DVD+ or DVD-, two different types of discs each wont work in the other types burner.

What discs are you trying? CD's, DVD's, DVD-DL's, etc.

Rather than throw your discs away I have an old DVD +/- you can have if you want it and use both.

You just swap the drives over, or if you can get your machine to me I'll do it, it only takes a couple of minutes.

Most drives can use both discs.
