Well after 6 weeks of pretty good usage and about a 95% good usuage with the recommended Imation 4x DVD R- Media, the 5005 stopped reading the discs - coming back with an invalid disc message in 20 attempts. Does the same thing with 8x R- Imation media.
Went through both levels of tech support, upgraded to latest firmware et all, but no change.
Their solution is to send it in for service, sigh, after only 7 weeks of service.
The one thing that bothers me is that my cheap comp usa discs still appear to be going through the preparing process and being read. I've stopped using them and gone to the more expensive "approved" imation media, so that they can be read on other DVD players.
Any advice before sending it in? any thoughts on why 20 Imation discs that worked great before don't and the cheap compusa is still being read?
Thanks in advance.
