I recently purchased a 50-pack of Verbatim 1x-8x DVD+R's for my CREATIVE 8x DVD+-RW writer. I heard this was a good brand but my burner doesn't recognize it at all. I searched through the forum and seen a similar thread but the conclusion seemed to be that the writer just didn't "like" the brand. Also, I have the latest firmware installed on the device. If there is anything else that could possibly help out, let me know. Thanks!!!
