It appears that everything is working now after installing Creator 5X update (ecdc_v126.96.36.199_basic_enu.exe). I believe what has happend causing my problems is that I was not able to install this ecdc_v188.8.131.52_basic_enu.exe, till you advised me to use RoxiZap to remove all the files after uninstalling. This ecdc_v184.108.40.206_basic_enu.exe is apparently needed to allow formatting of DVD+R/W.
Thanks Skybird for your assistance.
