Wow this thread is growing. Great to see that people have found some media that works with this writer. However I think it’s important that you verify the media on another DVD drive besides the BTC. Some people (including myself) seem to have problems reading back the burned media on other equipment even though it’s perfectly readable on the BTC.

So when posting successfull media please let us know if the media verified correctly on another DVD-ROM drive. A simple Nero ScanDisc surface test and/or a Nero Transferrate test should do the trick. K’s probe is another excellent utility for testing burnquality. You can get it here http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=78353. You can compare your C1/C2 scannings for a given media here http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=76
