Buffalo Blu Ray Writer cannot write to anything except Verbatim BD-Rs.

Hi, I have a Buffalo External Blu Ray writer BR-X816U2-AP (USB) which I use with Windows 7 32 Bit and Cyberlink Power2Go 6 (which came bundled the writer). Till date, I've used 3 types of BD-R-DL disks:

1) Unlabelled (white inkjet paper) Blu Ray Disks
2) Optical Quantum BD-R (2,4,6x) Blu Ray Disks
3) Verbatim BD-R-DL (2,4,6x), BD-RE-DL (2x)

I'm trying to burn an ISO file to a Blu Ray disk.
Out of these, it only works fine with the Verbatim disks. All other OEMs disks are thrown out in the first 2 seconds of the write (Power2Go goes from 'preparing' to 'failed' and ejects the disks). I initially throught it was a problem with the disks, but how can so many disks be faulty? I've tried it on around 5-10 disks across the first 2 types.
I've tried this with Power2Go and the Windows native burning tool, but both give the same results.
For Power2Go the error code is: 0xeb020b9c
Request your help here. I'm attaching Power2Go logs from both the failed (fail.txt) attempt and passed (pass.txt) attempt.

I've raised this issue also with the respective OEMs and will keep you posted on the updates.
Additionally I'm using DVD Identifier and also media block data for both the Disks (Passed and failed)

Sorry that no one has answered you so far tanmayj.

I would advise trying ImgBurn, a free burning program found here: www.imgburn.com Easily the best burning program available these days.

Even if it fails, we are more familiar with ImgBurn error codes than any Cyberlink program.

Thanks. I had contacted Optical Quantum, and they put a mail saying that their disks were not compatible with my writer! I'm not sure why, since the disks are 6x and the writer is 8x. But they flatly stated that it was a legacy writer and the disks werent compatible with it. They've given me a list of compatible writers, which I'm pasting here...

Re: Buffalo Blu Ray Writer cannot write to anything except Verbatim BD-Rs.

There's no support for their disks in your firmware apparently. You might look at the Buffalo site and see if there is an updated firmware available for your drive, but there may only be faint hope of that.

Perhaps you should just switch to Verbatim single layer blank blu ray. That's what I use in my old LG drive.

I see my LG GGW-H20L drive listed as "Not Compatible" there in your chart. But I wasn't going to buy their media anyway.
