    I have been using the DRU-500AX for about a month and a half now with no problems. I was even burning some disks last night!!

    This morning I was backing up a DVD for a neighbor and ran into an error with the burner.

    I get a dirty disk error when it goes to burn a disk. Basically I'm putting in the new dvd, selecting the files, then hitting "burn". Seconds later the disk tray is ejected and the error message shows up? I tried all 3 dvd media I have and got the same error message. Funny thing is I was burning on all 3 media brands/types last night and they worked flawlessly.

    I am using DVDDecrypter and then DVD2One before burning with RecordNow DX V 4.6

    I even put in a single layer disk and tried it with DVDXCopy and got the same error message when it went to burn.

    Did my system get a virus? Is the burner Bad?

    Please help.

    the sony 500ax is a piece of junk to me. I have a similar problem. I had mine for about two weeks and now every time i stick a disc in it, the drive will spit it back out for some odd reason.Tried different types of disk still the same thing. Seems like to me this drive cannot handle a heavy load of different typeof disks. I have a ricoh mp5125 for about a year with no problem. I guess we have been scammed brother.
