Hi, I have been using verbatim -R single layer blanks for a long time with no problems. However, I opened a pkg. of Fuji -R blanks & proceeded to make a backup on my Sony RDR-GX7 recorder. I was using a backup as the play disc. For some unknown reason the Sony started to backup my disc, then flashed the "disc dirty" message, then stopped the recording. I cleaned the disc & put it back in again. About 45 seconds later same message appears. OK, I got a fresh Fuji blank, washed it, and proceeded to try again. Same message appears after about 45 seconds.
OK, this time I used my other Sony recorder- (same model) to find out if recorder # 1 had a problem. I got the same message again. OK, I put in a Fuji +RW blank and the recorder makes the backup no problem.
Now I want my +rw disc back so I turn on my PC and put the backup in the drive. I click on clone and get a message stating there is damage to the disc?? Clone says it can't read the disc so I can't proceed.
Lastly, I found a Verbatim -R blank so I stuck it into the Sony recorder. Guess what- it makes a perfect backup copy of my backup.
I am very confused. I have not seen the odd message Clone gave me. I have the latest versions of AnyDvd & Clone and have had no problems with any recordings from Clone or my DVD recorders. Can someone help me out on this one? I sure don't know how a new pkg. of -R Fuji's can cause all this trouble. Thanks all.
