I hope this is the right section to post to.
I have a Sony DRU-820A Dual Layer DVD Burner. I'm using the DVDFab platinum 126.96.36.199 and Verbatim +R DL media. I have only managed to burn one Dual Layer disk. All the rest have failed. I slowed the burning rate down to 2.4X (what it says on the media) but still no luck. Went to Sony to see about 1.0c (I have 1.0b) but the 820A is not listed for some reason. I can't find the 1.0c firmware anywhere. I read that this drive has a tendency to overheat. Here is the vso log and event log of my last failed write attempt.

Has anyone else had this problem with the 820A or know of a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This drive has no problem at all writing single layer disks. Thanks in advance.
