I have learned my lesson that is for sure.
I just picked a Sonly 25GB from Microcenter and it will not even read the blank disc so I burn the files off my computer.
I spent $199.00 I was going to sell it on Ebay but forget it, I don't want to get a bad rating or anybody having this problem.
I can't find any firmware updates, except from Sony, Dell and this is stand alone.
I don't know of anyone who does firmware flashing to fix this problem.
So I guess I am going to spend another $200.00, I have all kinds of disc that I can't use. My very first one was Verbatim but I got the LTH by mistake.
Thank You for the advice!!!
