I checked the site - it would seem I need to have Windows installed to
do the flashing. I don't. 

And as I mentioned before, I was able to get this to work with the
patter dvd-rs (even if they are labelled +r) twice before. I don't
think any configuration has changed since then. The drive is *supposed*
to handle all these different formats, and so if it works all right
using dvd+rw, why not dvd+/r, since the dvd+r (or dvd-r) is supposed to
be the more mature (and probable more simple) writing method?

I suppose that''s the type of media I am trying to use. I am googling
more closely on this.
