Optorite .. need help



I’m using good programs to burn backups of my DVD’s … at the end of the program when it comes time to burn, I get messages like “the recorder does not support this type of disc or please insert a correct disc to write to”. I use to burn + or _ and then it would only burn to +'s, and now it won’t burn at all. When I start the programs, it recognizes the blank disc and sets it up, but then it’s like the drive gets a problem and for some reason the program is not able to burn. I have tried cleaning the drive and updating the drivers and nothing seems to work. If I reboot fresh there has been times it would burn one disc, but will not see the disc next time.

I could really use some advice or help, whatever you want to call it, please.
