Pioneer BDR-203BK Compatible Media

Hi there.
I tried my first attempt at burning some data onto a blu-ray disc today. I bought these from ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=250461221067

Imageburn tells me that incorrect media has been installed and fails to burn. I have Vista X64 SP2 and in “Computer” it does not recognise a blank blu-ray is in the drive.

I played Blade Runner with PowerDVD so that works at least

I upgraded the firmware today and still no joy. I guess I have just bought blanks that are not good for my drive. What media do you guys use for the 203BK? I just want a cheaper 10 spindle pack to mess about with for now. Any good place in the UK to buy?

buy well know brands, unless you are brake and willing to take a chance on some unknow probably chinesse unreliable media.

I’m using Ridata 4x media that I’ve picked up on sale at a local store in the US, $35 for 15 pieces, and it burns at near 8x on this burner. I’m ok with Ridata, it’s not my first choice, but just like I did with DVDs, I used cheap Ridatas without problems on a Pioneer burner until Verbatims got universally cheap. Maybe in 5 years. :slight_smile:
