    Have you tried imgburn? There's an option to choose between quick and full erase. If that doesn't work there's a chance your dvd burner doesn't support burning to + or - format.

    dvd's aren't that expensive, if you doens't want the content anyway, just get another one. while burning there is an option to complete the rw so that it can't be rewritten anymore. perhaps that's your prob:.
