I would suggest checking the model number of the DVD drive, then looking it up on their site to be certain of its capabilities.
go to device manager-right click my computer icon, select manage.
select device manager in the menu that appears.
go to CD/DVD drives, click the plus, this will tell you what make/model your drive is.
then you can make sure the drive is capable of handling +R...
let us know what you find. good luck!
