    yes, i don't know what set up you have, but from my exp. the dvd burner/ writer should be MASTER, and the dvd rom should be SLAVE, this set up also works well with DVD Shrink and DVD Decypter as they will work together.

    you might want to try www.allmediaoutlet.com for
    your media they have (Ritek G04's) 100 for about $40.00 ship included)every one talks
    about these and i have made over 50 with no coasters.

    also my advise, even if the media is x4 or x8 only burn at 2x seems to have less coasters at that speed.

    my 2 cents
