    What program are you using?? My clone2 says that every time for a brief moment, then proceeds without problem

    Good media is a must but I can't say for sure that is your problem. Prolly wouldn't hurt to try some high quality media, maybe some RW's for practicing.
    Good Luck,

    the 300n only burns +r blanks... so make 100% certain that you aren't using -r. My 300n likes Maxell DVD+R 4X and Ritek Ridata DVD+R 4X(unfortunately it only recognises them as 2.4X so it takes a little longer to burn).
    Also, your firmware should be version 3.20(the most current from HP).
