My CD/DVD drive is not recognizing the new blank media (TDK DVD-R) I just purchased. I have seen some references in other threads to there being brand-specific problems, and I was wondering if that might be the case here? I have used numerous brands of DVD-Rs in the past and never had any problems. In fact, I have used this exact brand (TDK) before. Is TDK known to be crappy from time to time? What brands would people recommend? I have never had this problem before, but I sure as H don't want to throw away more money on media that won't be recognized, so I would be grateful for any suggestions. BTW...that might be a good idea for a new forum or a sticky somewhere too: a listing of different brands of various blank media products that people have had good/bad luck with... Note: I have had a problem in the past where after a bunch of write errors the mode was switched from DMA to PIO without me knowing it, which then caused errors every burn until I reset it. But that was a burning issue, and I can't even get to that potential problem if the blank media are not recognized. :rolleyes: I have seen a bunch of tangentially similar threads, but none with this exact question. My apologies if I missed a duplicate thread somewhere.
