    I am having a problem with Imation DVD-R. Both CloneDVD (2.9.1.1 AnyDVD 6.1.6.9) and Nero V6 appear to write successfully but when I try to playback I get an invalid media message. I do not have the problem with some Office Depot branded DVD-R I purchased at the same time for testing. I am using a Sony DVD-RW model U18A and an AOpen model DSW1812P, same problem with both drives. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Media info below.

    Use Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden Premium, Maxell Plus (made in Japan), or Maxell Broadcast Quality (made in Japan) instead.
