"No recordable media" error

    I've been using a Sony DVD burner, and Sony DVD-Rs(120 min, 4.7 GB, 16x/1x, w/ accuCORE), both purchased at Staples, combined with AnyDVD and CloneDVD.

    Never a problem until now. CloneDVD will burn the image just fine, but when I insert the blank Sony DVD-R, (which I've been using) it says "No Recordable Media", and it also does this with Memorex DVD-Rs(16x, 4.7 GB, 120 min).

    However it works fine with "TEON" DVD-Rs(4x, 4.7 GB, 120 min)

    I am using the latest AnyDVD and CloneDVD updates, and the driver for the burner has had no recent changes.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    CloneDVD Error message: "no recordable media" appears after the image is burned and I insert the blank DVD-R

    I have a suspicion that it's a bad batch of discs, since the TEONs work and the Sonys don't, and this is the third time I've had a problem with Sonys DVD-Rs. It's just that Sony is usually better quality.
