NERO 6 problem

I have a question regarding Nero burner (6 ultra edition) when I try to burn data on a DVD.
(My DVD recorder is "Master:_NEC DVD_RW ND-3520A"), OS is XP Pro.

After adding stuff for burning, I click "burn" (multisession). At this point, a warning sign appears saying:

You are about to create a multisession write once DVD.
Session No.2 and above will not be readable with some DVD ROM drives and
operating systems prior to Windows XP.
How do you want to continue?

If I click the first option, after the burning session no data whatsoever shows up, even though
under Properties the DVD shows that it is full. As if the files are hidden somehow.

The second option seems fine except it doesn't allow adding stuff later.

Does anyone know why is this? Should I perhaps change my DVD ROM drive?

just as the warning says, some older dvd drives may not allow viewing of multi session discs.

Multi-session DVDs be a proverbial pain in the backside. I don't bother burning multi-session DVDs if I can help it.

Spotted on another forum:

Try DVD+R [disks] instead of DVD-R [disks].

- multi-session DVD+R is more compatible with DVD drives
- multi-session DVD+R has smaller gap size between sessions

For example, if you have burned 10 sessions on a DVD-R disc, you have already lost 258MB of space for those gaps. This is 5% of the whole 4.3GB. But if you are using DVD+R disc, you have lost only 18MB.
