    I have a new Sony 710a DVD burner and have been having mixed results using Sony's DVD+R DPR47LS2 blanks. About 1 out of every 2 fail CRC checks (i.e. some files are not readable). Most recently, I tried to back up about 2.0 gigs of data to a "data CD" using the Nero software that came with the drive (Nero Express 6, version Sony edition). After about 11.5 hours of writing, it was only 53% completed with the burn and I needed to use my PC for other things so I had to stop it. Any idea what's going on? Here are the spec's of the blanks from DVDinfo:

    Could having the DVD burner on its side cause any problems? I've been able to burn 6 for 6 video Verbatim-brand DVD-R's with none being bad, so is this just a case of the media being bad?? Why wouldn't Sony blanks work in a Sony drive? Also, I've installed the newest drive software from Sony.

    Bob the success rate on the verbatim is about
    the same as I'm getting. I've had sony DRU-700a
    for about 6 months, its installed in an external
    drive kit. I only use verbatim or Ritex media
    (Ridata),your problem is probaly your media. Go to
    wherever you got your verbatim's and buy a dvd+rw
    to do your testing with, this should cut down on costs until you find your problem. I don't think
    your burner was desinged to burn on its side that may be the problem. I've 1 slow burn with
    my nero but I aborted the burn and restarted .
    All I can tell you is stay on this forum and you will get a lot better help than I can give you
