  1. ive had my computer for about 6 months now and have had no problems burning dvd's/cd's.my writer is a samsung 16x dual layer dvd rw.ive been using nero 6 to burn my images.the problem started today when i got some new dvd's (datawrite).i tryed to burn on to them but it just wouldnt burn, it would cancel as the buffer kicked in.i think i found out what was wrong,my writer is a dvd+r and the disc's that i got are dvd-r.....can you confirm this problem?the problem now is when i try to burn onto a normal cd it only burns up to about 50% give or take then fails.did the fist problem do something to my setting and if so what do i do?

    If your DVD writer only supports +R / +RW, then you cannot use -R / - RW DVD's to burn.

    As for your CD issue, try burning at a lower speed or use different brand CDR's.
