So wait. It's DVD+/-R and DVD+RW, but not DVD-RW? Nowhere in the product description does it even mention RW capability.

Again. Nowhere in the product description does it mention +RW capability. Only in the product title. And common sense dictates that a +/- drive would write to +/-RW, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Something's fishy.

I've sold some cheap dual-format DVD drives, but they've NEVER been this ambiguous about it.
