Sony 530 sucks.. HATES DVD-R discs

I’ve tried burning Ritek G04’s, Memorex DVD-R, and Pioneer DVD-RW (2X)…
None of the discs produced are readable in any other player if the session is closed… (but, can be read fine in the burner…)
(So in otherwords, in RecordNow, it has to be set to TAO - Not Closed for the disc to be readable in other players…)

However, when I switch to Memorex DVD+RW, the disc can be read in every other player I have…
bah…

I’m backing up a DVD with my 530A as I write this. I also use both +/- R’s. Toss (uninstall) the RecordNow Max software. It’s not much good. Download the trial version of Nero 6 and try it. I’m sure that it will work for you. Also, make sure there isn’t any Roxio burner software installed, and if there is, uninstall that before installing Nero.

You will also need to do the firmware upgrade to the 530A, if you haven’t done that already.

good luck.

Hummm… I had the same problem with Nero, and am using the newest firmware…
Roxio will never, ever go on my computer :slight_smile:

I also only have 88% of the buffer useable in nero… do you have the same problem? The buffer is never full?
Thanks!
