Windows XP says a DVD+R is a CD

When there is no disk in the drive, XP recognizes it as a DVD-RAM. With a DVD+R inserted it says its a CD-R. When you try to write to it, it says "Windows encountered an error when trying to copy this file. What do you want Windows to do?" and offers Retry and Cancel. Retry doesn't work. I uninstalled Roxio (it was an old copy and only had CD drivers) and nothing changed. The DVD+RW drive was recently installed. How can I write to DVD+R disks?

  1. You need a 3rd party software to write DVDs. The Windows XP CD writing program only writes CDs.
