i bought 2 or 3 months ago 5 dvd-rw (1X) (i don’t have any other infos cause i sold them). There was no way to burn them! Every time the burning failed and when i tried to erase and try again, it failed during erase process. So i decided that my drive did not like that kind of supports and sold them to a friend. Turns out that the 3 disc i tried to burn are completly useless and no more recognized as a dvd-rw from any machine with any dvd reader/burner. the BTC destroyed them! Same friend told me he discovered that this burner has problems and can’t write DVD-rw. The penalty is the destruction of the supports and on the long run even the destruction of my burner. Someone has an explanation for all this?
itÂ´s difficult to say somthing without any background (name, mid) of the medias, what fw have you used.
maybe the media was/is not compatible with the 1004.

this is not right, when you use medias which are in the support list they work correctly. iÂ´m working with 4 different types of dvd-rw medias and all are working great.
I’ve also burned a DVD-RW media with this burner a few months ago. It was a PrimeOn disc with MID ricohjpnw11 if I remember correctly. After trying to burn, neither the 1004 nor a Pioneer 106 that I tried later recognized the disc as DVD-RW. But my NEC 2500 has no problems accessing the disc now. Maybe you are able to get the discs back to life with this drive.
i knew that the question was a little too general, but my goal was to know if there is a major general issue for this driver burning DVD-RW. I see that there is not and that can only make me happy!
I had this problem before with the 2x Ritek DVD-RW. Before firwamre 0050 came out, I was “kind of” able to burn on it and erase it but then one time when I tried to erase the disc, it failed half way and next thing I noticed was the disc was complete dead (could not read it anymore). But when firmware 0050 came out, which fully supported the media, I was able to read, write, and erase from the so called “dead” disc again.
