I'm not sure exactly where I should post this--I have been reading this forum for a very long time, despite my newer user information.
I have a newer Vostro 1510 laptop with a Matshita UJ875s DVD-+RW DL drive. I recently have not been able to burn -r discs. Thinking that it was the TDK discs i had (I had 4 packs of 50), I took others' advice and bought 200 Taiyo Yuden -r discs and 100 Verbatim -r discs from Supermediastore and another online retailer (name escapes me at the moment).
I tried both of those last night and my drive still isn't working with those. Because I can burn to +r discs still, I started researching online and found numerous threads about Microsoft updates being the culprit and to do a regedit, delete upper & lower filters had to reinstall AnyDVD and it still will not recognize -r discs but it will with +r discs.
Does anyone have a real fix for this? Many other users on other boards said the regedit method worked for them, it did not with mine.
I'm using XP Pro sp3.
