Some writers are very partiular about the media they use.

Not all disks are the same and the write / rewrite disks do not reflect lasers very well dpending on the type of dye they use.

Always use good quailty disks.

it is all to do with the focal length of the laser - I have had to return a dvd drive that could read and write dvds but could not read or write cds of any kind. I checked with the makers site and it was a known fault.
