Benq 1620 pro problem ! it cant recognize DVD-R and always ask to insert a disk!

Hi there,

First of all , sorry for being the long post , i just wanted to clarify the issue

I have Benq 1620 pro DVD (+,-) R , am every time i try to burn something to a DVD-R , the drive ejects it and i have an error message that differs with the software am using for burning, here are the erros i got

1- With Nero 7 : It says ( disk empty , and asks me to insert one ) though the disk is there.

2- With WinXP pro , sometimes it even fails to create an image of the copied files giving an error , or if it copies them , it still asks me to insert a disk.

3- With CopytoDvD , it says ( Incompatible format ) , and advice me to try another brand OR empty disk.

So , apparently its a media compatibllity !! Here is the wierd thing , nero burns iso files perfectly on the same DVD-Rs !!

I upgraded the firmware but no luck.

When i ran DiscInfo it said that "lock is detected " at region protection , since am totally new to dvd burning i dont even know what shall does this mean , could anyone give me a glimpse, and does it have anything to do with my issue ?

I just bought this burner , and want your advice , coz if its something in the burner itself i shall deliver it back.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks for your time and effort

regards
