Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R:MCC-004-000]

These are not reliable although as per another thread they are suspected fakes.

The manual for the machine says a long list of recommended discs but basically only says disc id and I’ve only found 1 online shop which actually gives this info on their sales pages.
Can anyone advise what discs you’ve used and where bought from, I’ve been advised Verbatim are good discs but they are not on Lite-on’s list.
I still need to apply the latest firmware update, anyone else done so and seen improvements?
Cheers,
Simon
