Hi all...

in my office i have a pc with dvd burner but don't know if it is DVD-R or DVD+R.
I asked the tech person a number of days ago but no response yet...
is there a way of finding it out from the pc?

Google for and downolad "Nero Info Tool", it's a free utility that will tell you everything about your burner and more.

start > control panel > system
hardware tab > device manager
look for DVD / CD rom drives, click the + to expand
assuming the proper device drivers are installed it will say here what you have (something like philips DVD +- RW)
most likely (unless its quite an old computer) you have a DVD +- RW, meaning it can write / rewrite on either media type

It works with all formats checked. It's neither a DVD+R drive nor a DVD-R drive. It's a DVD-RAM drive which is yet a different type of disk.

Huh?

It's a 20x Write Speed DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVD-RAM drive (burner) compatible with all DVD/CD formats.
