    Question-2 Pro'lly the most asked question...

    ...and since I'm not an original type, I'll ask it too...

    recommendations for media for my burner???

    I've got a Sony DRU-800A (KY06 firmware) and just tried my first burn tonite...wound up with a coaster.

    I was using Memorex 16X discs that my GF has been using in her Memorex burner since she bought it and we've yet to have an issue. Her burner is a Memorex DL4Rw. It's not a big deal...I can have her burn the things we need but, when we buy more media, I'd like to make sure that it's compatible with both burners. I wasn't able to find a compatibility listing on Memorex's site and Sony's seemed to indicate that the media we're using (if I'm reading DVD Decrypter right) is supported.

    DVD/Media specs from Decrypter follow:

    WOW! Couldn't have asked for a faster answer. TYVM!

    One more quickie question: am I reading correctly that the ProDisc media is supported by Sony's DRU-800A? (that based upon this chart from their website)...I have to admit that my first time 'round, I violated several of your Golden Rules: burned without having the firmware updated, burned too fast (16x), and burned using DVD-Shrink's native Nero support. I don't know whether to give up entirely on this burner/media combination or just try adjusting a few things now that I've gotten Decrypter and a firmware update.

    Any other quick insights???

    It looks like they like Prodisc 4x. Also look at this.

    Just stick with the Verbates and TYs and kiss your burn problems away.

    Regards
