I bought this great burner a few months ago. It has been doing a great job for me until today. I am not sure if it just does not like the media or what.
What has worked for me in the past:
What is not working for me today:
I figured since the Memorex CD-RW worked , then the Memorex DVD+RW would work.
This is not the case. I wanted to use the plus for RW’s because the speed is 8x, vs. the 2x with the minus.
What seems to happen is, I get a burn error every time. The burn does not even start, no blinking orange light. When I open plextools and tru to do a quick or long erase, it tells me the disc is unformatted and does not need a erase. Do I have to format the disk or something? If so, how? I have never had to do that. Most of my burning software will say formatting in the beginning of the proccess. Maybe the Memorex DVD+RW are just not compatible?
My main question:
I know you guys have a lot of knowledge on burners. What is the best + and - dvd’s for rw and also r? I just dont want to waste my money on dvd’s for them not to be compatible with my: Plextor PX-712SA/SW. It’s the SATA version.
Thanks in advance!
