    hey guys,
    i have bought some dvd+r (made is mirror products), i have a sony dvdrw drive but it seems the drive cannot read the disk, it works fine with the dvd-r and rw's.

    what might be the problem here?

    Is your drive dual format compatible?

    What's the model # and current firmware version of that sony burner?

    What's the speed rate of those dash and plus blanks? The MID codes would help.

    Use this free tool to find all that info and post back:

    Most likely your burner needs a firmware update.Especially if you have an older drive and the + format blanks are 16x.

    I'm glad you got it fixed. What's the MID code for those Mirror products discs?
