Riddle me this DVD-R vs other formats

I have a 2 year old Dell and I am trying to burn DVDs. I have a shit load of DVD-R discs, but this thing doesn't see them. Is that software or hardware? If hardware, anyone want the discs?

Hmmm, what kind of blanks and what type of drive?
The blanks are TDK DVD-R

The drive is whatever came with the dell 8300.
My guess is the media.
We have problems here at work with + R's working on older machines, but not with the - R's. :hmm:
Well shit!! That sucks for me.
+R's FTW!
Dells usually have problems with -R at my work. I use +R for my Dell, -R for my Mac. Even though my Mac can read both, -R has given me the best consistancy.
