Sony Dvd Rw Dw-q30a

I am new to this forum so please bear with me…I have recently bought a new PC with a SONY DVD RW DW-Q30A dual layer dvd burner. Using Clone DVD2, coupled with Any DVD and Full Face Ridisk 8x -R printable dvds I have limited sucess in back ups.

The discs either don’t play or jump on both my Sony home dvd player, my daughters samsung dvd player or her laptop. They do play fine on the DVD burner itself. I had no problems with my old NEC DVD burner in my old PC.

Is it the media? The burner? Help, the coasters are mounting!!

I’d try different media first anyway, Ritek definitely isn’t the best these days (and that’s putting it kindly!). Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim (but not the Pearl White variety) would be my recommendations.

If you can’t get hold of any of those, then Sony-branded (SONY D11) and Maxell +Rs (Made in Japan, MAXELL002) tend to burn well on my own burners, FWIW.
