    Using recordnow dx i cannot burn a cd-rw disk, used both imation and verbatim blanks. Is anyone else having this problem. The recordnow program doesnt recognize the disk, and keeps telling me to insert a blank disk. However, the dru500 does burn well to cd-r. Any suggestions?

    Did you get the latest firmware from the sony storage site?

    yes, using firmware 'f'. It is weird, writes to cheap cd-r disks, but not to brand name cd-rw.

    I could be wrong here but I think there was an insert about a couple brand name media types that the sony could not write to and I think Verbatim was one of them? Not sure I would have to look and see. I have not tried either of those brands on my drive yet.

    yes there was something about DVD media inclucing verbatim and pioneer. But, i am talking about cd-rw media. Also, have you successfully burned to cd-rw? If so, what media did you use? Please include as much as you can ie 650mb, 700mb, or model number if you have it in addition to brand name. Thanks.
