Hi…
I’ve a SONY DRU-500A for some time now and always recorded in dvd-r’s from WORLDGATE 4x certified and never had problems…
They always burned @4x

The last shipment I’ve received I noticed they where slightly diferent and tried to do a burn n my recorder and surpridse surprise… they only burned @2x

The surface is slightly diferent from usual and I’ve done some investigation reading from several forums on several sites and none gave me the solution…

The recorder had firmware 2.0e and I’ve downgraded to 1.0d…
VOILÁ
problem solved
recording @4x goes well and without errors…

just want to share this thing
