First,check your Firmware.For the UW10A you need 1.1c.This is the lastest avaible.Sony gives no Firmware support for the Burner.
Thats why you havent found one…

Get the Firmware 1.1c @

I’ve used Monarch media with my Sony DRU500a… fine up to 4Gb.
You can if your lucky get bigger file sizes, but I dont recommed even trying.
But they are VERY cheap .63p each at www.scan.co.uk.
A 4Gb DVD, movie only, (dvddycript + dvd2one) gives excellent results everytime. If you want to put the menus & extras on you will need a much better quality DVD meda (TDK)
One more thing, the Monarch media will burn at 2x no problem.
