Default DVD Playback Issues

I've been using DVD Shrink and Nero for the past few years for my DVD needs. Recently my pirated version of Nero crashed and I simply purchased Nero 8 instead of taking the time to find a good pirated one.

Upon this change my burning has been weird. I had some Memorex DVD+Rs, which have always worked for me, which wouldn't get past the writing lead-in phase. So I purchased some Sony +Rs which burn and play on my laptop, but are not recognized by the DVD player that recognizes all of my other DVD+Rs.

I don't think that Nero is the problem because the old one worked so well. Any suggestions?
