[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRX-840U. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Ok guys, sorry if you’ve all heard this story before, but I’ve been looking everywhere, and my problem seems to be common, but I havnt found a solution that doesn’t involve way more trouble than anyone with a life has time for. I just bought a third DVDRW burner this week, because the first two had this same problem, so I’ve finally accepted its either software or user error. If it matters, this model is a Sony DRX840U external burner. It reads disks just fine, and presumably writes DVD+R just fine too. When I put a DVD+RL disk in, I get the normal autoplay popup, and windows explorer will confirm that the disk has 7 odd gigs free. The problem comes when I use any kind of burning softward to burn my VIDEO_TS folder, the drive either doesn’t recognize any media in the drive and ejects the tray, or in the case of nero, says that there is a cd-r in the drive, and the files will not fit on that disk. Sony was no help at all. Upon looking in windows help, I noticed that they don’t really offer any information about DVDDL. They give you all the instructions on where when and how to use most all other formats, but dont mention DL. <to anyone still reading,> any ideas?
