If you bought a computer that cost $2000 or above (8200 series) it would be in your best interests to call Dell and tell them you cannot burn DVD+R. They sent out alot of people the wrong drive, including myself. On my invoice a lady said we were supposed to recieve a DVD+R/+RW, so make sure you ask them to read it.
They already tried to replace my drive once, but they installed a D01 again so it still can't do +R.... more fun on the phone now. [/B]
No, I am using the Pioneer DVR-105.
Cheap media is not the issue, I am using Nashua DVD -R, which has always worked perfectly until a couple of days ago.
