Default dvd burner


I have a Sony +/- Dual Layer DVD Burner and i brought some DVDRWS (-). Thing is it won't let me burn onto them both Alcholol 120 and Nero say that the disc is unformatted, so when i try and format it or erase it , it kicks up an error saying check the disc is compatible, which it is!

The DVD burner is 4x write and the dvd discs are 1-2x write. On Alcholol and Nero it only gives me the option to burn at maximum speed or 4x speed, how can i configure them to burn at 1-2x, or could there be another underlying issue?

BTW, the discs i got are decent quality, and i;ve tried more than one disk..
