Trouble burning DVDs

I can't burn anything to DVD via Finder, Disk Utility or the third-party Burn utility from http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/. They all complain about the disc in the drive not being suitable; it seems to think the disc is not writable when a DVD-R is inserted.

 

I heard there was a program called PatchBurn that solved this problem, so I downloaded and ran it but it hasn't fixed anything. I know that the drive (sort of) works under OSX because i have tried Roxio Toast and it burns OK. Also, I remember having this problem before, solving it by installing Burn and rebooting, but the upgrade to 10.4.9 seems to have brought it back and none of the previous fixes work.
