    I have a I/O Magic dual format 8x rewitable it should support all the
    writing formats. I wrote two dvd 's on a -R disc, then the next time I tried
    to burn one it only wants a +RW,-RW disc, it rejects the -R as a
    incompatable media. It will write to a +RW,-RW disc ok. I checked the drive
    with Nero info tools and all the formats were checked boxed as on and
    active. Before I unistall and re-install (last resort for my knowledge of
    dvd writers) I was wondering if any one else had seen this happen.
    Thanks

    Have you shut down Windows and turned the power off? I have to do that
    periodically to "reset" the drive. Rebooting Windows should do that,
    but it doesn't seem to. Besides, it should not be necessary to reset
    it at all, but again, it is necessary.
