Sony DRU-500A - Media Help please dvd -rw

    If someone could please help me with a cheap media source and type for my Sony DRU-500A, I would greatly appreciate it.

    1) I am looking for -RW or +rw, at about 1$ each (up to 1.20$ is okay).

    2) It must work with the DRU-500A, and you have used a lot of it!

    Has anyone tried the BMI media that tiger direct sells for 50$ for a 50 pack?

    I bought a 100 pack of Princo dvd -rw a while back. White surface. Worked great, and I love the white surface. As i was getting low I ordered another 25 pack, same brand, from the same place I bought the 100 pack. Got them, same surfaces and everything.. Ran out of the 100 pack, and popped in one from the new psindle of 25, and I get write errors.. Tried a couple of them, and my Sony will not write to them.

    I tried doing a firmware upgrade.. and it still will not write to them.

    So I have a 25 pack of DVD -rw, that theres nothing wrong with and that I can not use.

    Meanwhile, I am in VERY bad need of storage.. I can not afford to spend 2$+ on name brand media.. I need to find a decent 50 pack for about 50$, but need to be very sure they work with my drive.

    Either + or - is fine, but I do want RW.

    I looked through the forums, and while I saw a lot on this Drive, I didnt see anything that quite answered this question for me.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
