What version of Windows? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 22 '11 at 20:18

@ultrasawblade if my dvd writer don't support dvd-r for writing then the windows disk image burner too can't write dvd-r disks. but my windows disk image burner can write image files onto any disks. i want to support burn programs to write to disks also. thanks

DVD "plus" R and DVD "minus" R are different. I would think by now that all writers are pretty much "multiformat", meaning they'll read/write both, but your laptop may have a lower-cost burner that only works with the DVD "plus" R's.

i said that this writer can write image files with "windows image burner" on win7-so my writer can write dvd-r disks but not with burn programs – mohsen May 23 '11 at 6:09
