ok just tried a cheep DVD+R DISC and it worked i was using philips DVD-R before and they would not work any reason for this...i thought myd dvd writer would support all types of disc,also when i put a -r disc in it tries to format it on vista and then freezes.

Is this click here your Laptop.

It says "Sony's NEC Optiarc optical drive AD-7560A handles all standard DVD formats including DVD RAM, but it is rather noisy when active."

DVD+/-RW upto 6x & DVD-RAM.

Found this, Don't know if it will work though, SuperMulti Drive Firmware AD-7560A - DS03 click here For a Sony Vaio Laptop.

Have you tried Acer Support?
