Hey, welcome to Tech Forums.

How positive are you about having a DVD writer as opposed to a DVD reader/CDRW combo drive?

Do you have any other brand of DVD-R disks to try? Have you ever burnt a DVD using that drive?

Also try one of the DVD's in another burner if you can. Some burners (like mine) sometimes don't like some brand DVD's. I had this problem with mine, it would burn CD's but not DVD's and it turned out to be faulty burner but mine was a brand new computer so don't start thinking that your burner broken just yet, LOL. Like imation said check to see wether you have a burner and trying another brand DVD and aswell seeing if you can burn it in another burner apart from yours.

also be aware that different brands of writers support different formats of disk(DVD-R,DVD+R,DVD-R DL,DVD+R DL)
