Hi guys, I've just finished setting up my new pc... windowsxp on a barton 2500+ with 1GB ram etc. Everything is working 100% except the Sony dw-u10a will not burn at all. I bought a sample pack of all sorts of diff dvd+/- r/rw to try... and none work. In fact, 4x ritek dvd-r and ritek 2.4x +rw will not even be recognized in dvdinfo. The closest i came was burning a -rw using the default NTI dvd/cd maker that came with it. It hung up at 1% and screwed up the -rw because now it will not read in dvdinfo, and the erase wizards cannot recognize it. I tried the same thing on a Memorex +r and it immediately kicked it out when trying to write TOC. I find it very strange why it cannot even read the info from certain blank dvds using dvdinfo (especially ritek). Would a flash take care of this, or should i rma this sucker back? It has certainly soured me on Sony, and if i send it back i will be looking for another brand.... how's the LG 4040 multi-burner?
