Trying to write DVDs and can't....

My CD/DVD Drive (Samsung Super WriteMaster SH-S203) won't copy anything to DVD - it always reads a DVD as having 0 bytes of free space.

On an (unrelated?) topic, it plays DVDs fine until I've been watching for about an hour, then the picture and sound jumps a bit every few seconds. Games also stall a bit as well.

What OS?
Do you have the software installed installed to burn with?
Will it burn a CD or do you get the same type of result?

Windows XP.

I was trying to use Windows' built in software but I appear to be having more luck with Nero 7 Essentials.

But now I'm very confused. The DVDs I'm using claim to be RW, but when I erase them, it says there's still data on the disk, as if they were recordables. And when I put in a disc that I haven't used before, it seems to think it's a CD and gives me a warning if I try to put more than 700MB of data on it :S
