Poineer DVD-RW DVR-K12D

i have a sony laptop which a poineer DVD-RW DVR-k12D (poineers says that it writes dvd+r and +RW)

but recently i was trying to write some data on a +R DVD and the nero would give me this message saying that you need to insert a -R or -RW in the drive, unable to write on +R +RW.
and i am on Region 2.

can anyone please guide me how can i solve this problem.

your help be much appreciated.

thanks

You have to ask SONY for an firmware update, not Pioneer.

Use recommended media, read the review: http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=8467

i have this problem when the burning process reaches the end. it gives me this message.

I’ve had tons of different errors from nero when burning dvd’s. I got a lens cleaner yesterday and now I can burn them!
