    Is this a factory original disc or a copy?

    What brand/type media are you using? Burn speed?

    Chances are that the Sony and Imation were made by a mediocre manufacturer, consequently there are a host of problems that can occur when using such media.

    We can see how my assuptions hold up by identifying the manufacturer of all the media you've used both good and bad. DVD Identifier is a great little app for this so here's the link:

    I'm guessing the Imation, if it's -R, will ID as low quality CMC Mag and possibly the Sony media as well. The TDK +R might ID as RICOHJPNR01 which is good stuff.

    If the media is of a format that your burner supports then it's suitable but there's no way to know with absolute cetainty how well it'll perform until you burn a few then scan the disc for errors with something like DVD Info Pro or Nero CD/DVD Speed :)
