Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
There are 2 types of dvd-rw discs, dvd+rw and dvd-rw. Some drives, especially older ones (since you are using XP) only support certain types. I run XP as well and many DVD+RW discs do not work for me. If this is the case, drivers arent your issue, its simply a hardware flaw. I would try experimenting with a different format, whether its + or - (plus or minus)
