Hi, I just tried to burn a DVD+R (Maxell) for the first time on a LITEON JLMS XJ-HD166 HH firmware v.DD06 that shipped 7 years ago, and is now in Dell Poweredge 800 (XP Pro).

It will play DVD+R and DVD-RW and DVD+RW made using other Dell. It will load blank DVD+RW. However if insert blank DVD+R it makes a nasty sparking sound and has large rpm changes. The blank DVD+Rs burn fine in other drive.

Specs from CDBurnerXP:
reads DVD-R/+R/+RW/+R DL and isn't supposed to read DVD-RW.
So is the problem the drive, the type of disc or bad discs?
