I have a Emperex IDE1008. I notice a lot of people are having trouble with the burner, but it's what I have.
I went to Staples and bought 4, 50 dvd-r packs, made by PLAYO.
My burner only recognizes a blank DVD-R 1 out of 20 tries, and sometimes several times in a row. I guess you could say it has it's good and bad days.
My question is: If my burner can read these DVD's, why doesn't it read them ALL the TIME? Why do i have to keep pressing eject, and insert the DVDR back in a dozen time for it to finally catch?
When it does burn though, and finalizes the DVDR, it reads great on any Player i put it in, including the Burner.
