I am aware of the difference between -r +r and rw. Initially I tried with blank dvd+r but regardless of that, an automatic formatting process is running....which ends unsuccessfully of course.
Seeing that, I thought it would work with a dvd-rw disc (since it can actually format ) but the formatting also ended unsucessfully.
I have also tried with roxio it starts then aborts because of a "recording error."
This is the first time this kind of problem is popping up.....Could it be something with the hardware?
I got a tech support friend to look at it for me, he hates vista so he insists that is the reason for everythinng.....but he fixed the problem nonetheless....somewhat.
It was a long process, at first he said it was in indexes on my dvds...so that even though they were technically blank, because the index was corrupted the pc was it as already full ....but apparently he was wrong about that.
then he insited that it was the program that was bad and gave me nero seven...which burned up to the end but did not complete ....so I eneded up with a coaster,
then he gave me nero 8 and it works fine now
and that's that
