DVD writers with writer's block

For some reason I am unable to write DVDs on my computer any more. When I got my PC a little over a year ago I wrote a few DVDs no problem. I had no need to use it for several months but now that I'd accumulated a lot of data I decided to burn some of it to make space on my hard drives.

No dice.

I get a dialogue box pop up saying "Problem Copying - Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file."

I have tried un-installing drivers, updating drivers, updating firmware, tried using different discs all to no avail.

The other day I see an all in one external DVD Writer/Hard Drive/Card Reader on sale and I have some cash burning a hole in pocket so think I'll take the easy option and just get an external drive to solve my problem. At least I thought it would. Upon installing the drive and trying to drop a file on to the drive with a blank DVD in it I get "G:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function."

This is driving me nuts I just want to put some data on to a DVD, what am I missing?

Spec:

Windows XP Home SP2
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
Original Optical Drive: HP LightScribe DVD640
External Drive: ATMT DW567 Media Burner

Both are DVD+R RW DL and I'm using or at least attempting to use Sony DVD+R RW DVDs

Any pointers would be massively appreciated.
