It looks (http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SY_BrowseCatalog-Start?CategoryName=cpu_Sony_PCAccessories_CD%2fDVD Burn_DVDBurners&Dept=computers) like the ones they sell that don't support both standards tend to be DVD+R.

I have better luck with +R.

When buying media keep an eye out for deals (check fatwallet.com). You can find blank DVDs for really cheap.
