    No you can't.

    Buy a better DVD drive (Sony and HP typically will burn ALL FORMATS) as they are very cheap now, or take it to a friend who has a DVD burner that can do DVD-R. It's in the hardware and drivers won't help, dude.

    Check on the manufacturer website if they have an upgrade firmware that will support DVD-R. If not and your burner dont support burning DVD-R at all there is not much you can do but buy another one. Today mostly DVD burner comes really Cheap.
