Thanks bjkg, nice post!
A question that I have is that it seems weird that some software burns okay with the same media that others don’t. I don’t want to cross post but I did just post this in another thread geared to the 720A
[I]Okay I need a bit of help, well alot! I have spent hours reading though and trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. I trust that someone here might have the answers.
I have a Sony DRU-720A with the latest Firmware from Sony. Using a Dell P4 3.2 GIG 2 GB RAM. Win XP SP2. I have not done any tweaking so itâ€™s basically out of the box. Until today had not installed Nero that came with the Sony.
I have been able to burn Protected and non protected DVD’s using 4X TDK +R using DvdXcopy and Clonedvd2 and it seems to work pretty well, sometimes jumps a bit in my player but worked. Since this burner has the capability to burn at up to 16X I wanted to get faster Media. I got 16X Taiyo Yudan -R and also picked up 8X TDK -R from Costco. The Taiyo Does not work at with DvdXcopy or CloneDvd but did burn a Non protected movie with NeroRecode2, looks like it burned at 6X not 16.
The 16X â€“R TDK does seem to work with DvdXcopy but not Clonedvd2.
It seems I may be having media issues but also seems that it depends on what program I am using. I wanted to know why I having so many problems? As well as get some recommendations on Media to try? [/I]
I have the latest Sony firmware but I guess I should consider using some of the tweaks these guys have developed. Still seems crazy that different software is having issues…
