Some DVD writer are very picky...

if you could remember in your DVD writer's manual there is a list of supported media.. eg. Sony DVD-R +/-, Imation DVD-R +/-...so on and so forth

maybe what you have (the DVD-R) isn't on the list or not supported..

Well I am no expert when it comes to DVD, I'm just trying to help out.

I have had similar problems with dvd writers , and one was a Sony ,

are you using Nero burning ? the Nero info tool kit will list the drive and the supported formats , my Sony dvd writer lost the dvd - R function

and and made excellent coasters of dvd disks that I had been using ,

it was cheaper to buy a new dvd writer ,

the only temp. cure was to reboot , then it would sometimes work  :evil2:

it still writes CD's ok , so it found a home in my spare computer ,

If your specific DVD writer(burner) doesn't write DVD-R or did & has stopped.You may be able to flash it's firmware.Basically the BIOS for the DVD writer's chip.

btw the "chip" manufacturer may not be Sony But maybe lite-on for example & there are some others.It may have a Mediatek chip set.So check them for the flash also.
