Default Anyone need DVD+RW discs?

I exchanged my home DVD burner recently, going from a crappy entry-level Cyberhome model to a much nicer Panasonic one. I'm very happy with the exchange, but now have 5 Fujifilm 4.7GB DVD+RW discs that I can't use. As far as rewritables go, the Panasonic only records on DVD-RW'* or DVD-RAM discs, and I'd prefer the latter because there are a bunch of cool recording features that can be utilized with the RAM'*.

Can anyone use these +RW'*? Wanna buy or trade for a few DVD-RAM'*? I just don't want these to sit around and not get used. None of my cohorts at ACNA (Aurora Club) need these, so I figured I'd ask y'all. PM with any offers/questions.

Laptop yes, but I have no reason to have so many rewritable discs. I bought them specifically for TV recording usage. I still have a BUNCH of CD-R'* and CD-RW'* that I bought back in the day (when they were new technology) and never used.

I'd take em but my DVD burner is goofed up. I can burn DVDs fine, but I can only watch them on my computer DVD player. I can't watch them on the tv.

This may be a dumb suggestion, but are you forgetting to finalize the discs after recording? Of course this wouldn't matter with +RW or -RW discs, but would be necessary with -R or +R'*.
