    I bought 100 16x +R disc. About 1 in 4 were good. Now I use Fuji 16x +R and have had 3 bad out of 400. I don't seem to have the same results as everyone else. What could be the problem?

    At the time I was using:
    Sony VRD-VC20 drive
    DVD Santa
    Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R

    Now I am using:
    Sony VRD-VC20
    Fuji 16x DVD+R

    There has been a lot of Ty discs sold on the cut rate sites that are not genuine Ty's Run some through DVD Info Pro and check the codes.
    Fuji (MadeinJapan) are Ty's.

    There are fake TY's sold as stated...they also have more than one level of quality, make sure you didn't get the value line. I don't have any experience with these discs and probably never will.

    EDIT: Would be useful to provide an MID from the TY's

    Are you recording at "maximum" speed, on these 16X discs?
    If so, try burning at 8X, and see if that does any better.......
    Good luck!

    Just to add to the others advice:
    Firmware update to on the Sony?

    To see if you have genuine TY look for this code for the 16x +R etched by the inner hub (back is easier to read) TH00xxxx - xxx's represent #'s

    Just an update.

    I updated my firmware.
    Used Clonedvd2 to write.
    Used YUDEN000T02 Discs at 8x.

    4 out of 4 - NO COASTERS

    Thanks for the input, much appreciated!

    Glad you are seeing the results you were looking for. 9X out of 10 the problem is due to old firmware or dodgy media.
