My RW/DVD Drive can read "-R" DVDs but not "+R" DVDs



I have an HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4481B drive in an IBM Intellistation and it looks like the front of the drive has a “+” mark. However, the drive is not able to read “+R” DVDs. To make matters more confusing, the drive can read “-R” DVDs. Is there something I can do to fix this? Thanks.


I have the same problem! Can anyone help??


According to your drive specifications, it should be able to handle +r and +RW media. Don’t know why it won’t. Hopefully someone else will have the answer…
