    run a disc ID program and see what quality the media you are using is:

    As you can see on that page Ritek has disc ID's listed under both the 2nd and 3rd class media list. 2nd class and you might be ok depending on how well your burner handles that brand. 3rd class and you should just use them for something other then games.

    A firmware update to your burner (if one is available) may also help with disc compatibility:

    Also if your burner can booktype the DVD+R DL discs to DVD-ROM it may also help with compatibility.

    To be honest, i would get Verbatim 6X max DVD+R DL discs. And i would get them either at Supermediastore or Newegg which are two stores that you can trust. And where you will know you are getting exactly what you paid for.

    With Verbatim you will get quality media. With brands like Sony and Ritek you never kow what you have until you get them and run a disc ID program.
