Please help!

I have a Sony DRU-510A and have been trying to use RiDATA 4x-R Media…18 coasters so far, 4 good burns, every one I tried using a RW worked great repeated same w/-R RiDATA 4x, and as I said most ended as coasters? Any ideas? I have the latest firmware and at www.dvdrhelp.com other Sony DRU 510A users had excellent burns!!! I have compared the media code and It´s different look:

There have been a few reports of bad batches of Ritek G04’s out in the marketplace. You may have gotten some of them.

Where did you get these disks? And what program are you using to burn them?

My only real suggestion is to slow down your burning speed if you haven’t already tried it. Or try a different burning program.

There are some free programs available. Burnatonce will work with -R disks, and DVDDecrypter will work in ISO mode if you feel like experimenting.
