U using the right disks for the drive? some older drives can only recognise either -R or +R most new ones arent affected by this.

You probably just got a bad batch of DVDs. Is this just with one pack of them, or any brands of DVDs you try?

Have u installed any programs since this has started to happen that may have caused it? Like Nero or Roxio burner, or updated the IDE drivers.

Only look at the rest of my post if you've done what was posted above:

if all else fails, try a different dvd burner. if what they posted above doesn't fix the problem, i suspect a failing DVD burner.
