Burning DVD DL with ND 3550A

vbimport

#1

I am having problems burning DL’s with my NEC ND 3550A, I have it updated to the latest liggy 1.07 firmware and i am using the latest ImgBurn but I only have 1 DL left and thought i would see if theres anything im dong wrong before i go and try again but i think its the media im using its the DataWrite Titanium 2.4x with the media id CMC MAG-D04-00 which i know isnt very good but i didnt know the media id when i bought them and ive used datawrite many times in the past with no problems and one of my mates has just gone through 50 of them with no problems at all so i thought they would be ok but after doing research on the media id i now know he was very lucky lol

here is the error i got with imgburn…

I/O Error!

Device [1:0:0]_NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A 1.07 (E:) (ATA)

ScsiStatus: 0x02
Interpretation: Check Condition

CDB: 2A 00 00 1A 50 40 00 00 20 00
Interpretation: Write (10) - Sectors 1724480 - 1724511

Sense Area: 70 00 03 00 00 00 00 0A 00 00 00 00 0C 00 00 00 00 00
Interpretation: Write Error

So is there anything i can do? or is it just the crappy media?

I also have a Emprex H16X dvwriter too with the normal latest firmware instaled, would i be any better off using this??
