Best way to send errors to the list! No excusing necessary.

Have you tried this brand of DVD+RW before, in this drive? Has it
previously worked.

DVD drivers are sometimes picky about which media they will allow in
the drive - I had a NEC drive that wouldn't write to any TDK discs. I
reflashed it with updated drivers and the DVD writing borked totally,
although it would still write CDs - go figure! I've now replaced it
with a LG drive, which is much less picky.
