[qanda]This thread is about the Matshita UJ-850S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My UJ-850s recently stopped burning any dvds that I attempt. I have tried using nero 8, dvd fab 5, and img burn (latest version). I use to just use nero and never had any issues, now I cannot burn any DL discs. The process begins and fails within the first few seconds.

This is a crapy laptop burner with old firmware trying to write on crapy media.

thanks for your very astute observation. Seeing as I am stationed overseas right now in the military, I apologize that I cannot have a top of the line burner or top of the line media. Any real help would be appreciated. As I stated above, said crappy burner and crappy media were working before, now having issues.

Also, since I missed it before, let me say Hi to everyone, as I am a new member.
