[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRU-710A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi,
I have problems writing DVD on Sony DRU-710A. The original problem/post is posted here:
I have followed the advice found there, burn at a speed equal/greater than 8x, and use ImgBurn. Now I have more problems.
With Nero 8.0.3 and DeepBurner 22.214.171.124, burning at 8/12x will result a write error after writing approx 450mb. With ImgBurn 126.96.36.199, life is more painful. Here are a list of problems reported by ImgBurn burning at 8/12/16x, each occured randomly:
I 20:06:28 Writing LeadIn...

W 19:23:39 Potential 'WaitImmediateIO' Deferred Error - (84%, 0/3) - Session Fixation Error Writing Lead Out
W 19:23:39 Finalise Disc Failed! - Reason: Session Fixation Error Writing Lead Out
With error #2, the indicated write sectors is random, but usually above 2000000, although error with lower sectors is known to happen.
Burning with 6x speed, which I usually do before, and have an uneventful burning session albeit the result was questionable, is now I/O error prone. All this after installing ImgBurn.
I have restocked my Verbatim DVD+R 16x media, and to date I only succeeded in burning 1 readable DVD out of 10. The other 9 is unreadable and encountered the listed problems. I restarted WinXP after each error.
