I am currently using this drive borrowed from someone who wants me to teach them how to use it after I teach myself. I have found that it works great with TDK +R and +RW Media but does not work with TDK -R Media very well at all with only an occasional sucessful burn. I couldnt find any TDK -RW media for it so I dont know if that is problematic as well but I am betting it is. I tried memorex -RW media with it and it fails everytime accept with really small files. I think this drive has problems with -R -RW media in most cases based on my experience. I was going to stick with +R +RW media anyway but wanted to test it. So, I would also like to know if there is any reliable -R -RW media that works with this drive. I am dissapointed that it has these problems with media made by the same company but is -R instead of +R. I find that strange to say the least.
Balls, said the Queen if I had them I would be king!
