DVD-R not recognized

Asus Laptop with intel pentium processor...
May 14, 2010 at 22:32:43
Specs: Windows Xp and Vista, 633 / 512mb
I'm trying to burn an ISO and have not had any luck...programs that I use either don't recognize that there's a disc in the drive or just tell me the unit isn't ready...I'm trying to use a Maxtell DVD-R with 120min video 4.7GB DATA...before I used a DVD+R with all the other specifics the same to burn something different...does the +R part instead of the -R make a difference...or could it be what I'm trying to burn????
Please help.

netsurfer802, "does the +R part instead of the -R make a difference.". Yep, two different critters. Take a look at device properties and make sure you're using the right one.
Sure it's a DVR and not a CD?
Have the proper drivers?
Some DVRs require things you wish to burn to be in a separate folder (could depend on burning software), others require you to 'format' first. Yours?

Some older drives only support +R or -R. Newer drives usually support both. Check your manual.

1. Backups, 2. Backups and 3. Backups.
