Brand new 7240s not doing well

[qanda]This thread is about the Sony AD-7240S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,

Hoping someone can give me some guidence on these results. This is with an Asus P6T / Intel i7 system running XP.

These are with a 16x burn. The first two real DVDs that I tried to burn (16x) died at around 85%. Then I went down to 12x and got one to burn all the way, but my set-top DVD player couldn’t read the disc. I know this media isn’t the greatest but the wild buffer variations is what gets my attention. :frowning: What do you think?

They’re Riteks :Z. Could be a bad batch.

I’d burn 10 or 15 Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden, and if you run into any problems, THEN I’d start worrying.
